Welcome to Rome! Liverpool target Ashley Cole on brink of Roma switch

Ashley Cole lands in Rome as the Liverpool target edges closer to his much-anticipated switch to Roma

Ashley Cole has landed in Italy ahead of the Liverpool target’s anticipated move to Serie A outfit Roma.

The 33-year-old is currently a free agent after being released from Chelsea earlier in the summer following a glittering eight-year career at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool were reported to be ready to turn to the former Arsenal defender after being left frustrated in their pursuit of Sevilla youngster Alberto Moreno.

However, Roma appear firm favourites to sign Cole after the left-back arrived in Italy to complete a medical ahead of putting pen to paper on a speculated three-year deal.

Cole scored seven goals in 338 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea.
