Ashley Cole may not have officially left Chelsea just yet, but with the 33-year-old’s contract coming to an end following a season in which he lost his regular place in the Blues starting XI and the England fold, it remains unlikely he’ll opt to stay on in a bit-part role in West London next season.

Resultantly, for much of the season, the Premier League side have been linked with several potential ‘Ashley Cole successors’ in the tabloids, boasting a wide variety of price-tags and styles.

Well, with the summer window looming in, the time is now upon Jose Mourinho to decide who will take over the England centurion’s No.3 berth next season.

Just he’s in case he’s short on ideas, which let’s be honest, he probably isn’t, we at Football Fancast have outlined the SIX leading candidates to succeed Cole in the Chelsea starting line-up next season.
