Brendan Rodgers has been searching for a left sided defender for quite a while and with the likely transfer failure of Alberto Moreno, Cole could be the perfect player to fill the role.

Having been made a free agent since his recent departure from Stamford Bridge, the 33-year-old has been receiving a lot of interest with the likes of AC Milan, Barcelona, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Monaco also monitoring his situation.

The former England international is now given the choice of selecting his next destination but could reject all offers from Premier League clubs out of respect to his former side.
