Ashley Cole could well be offered a move away from Chelsea after big-spending French side Paris Saint-Germain were linked with the defender.

Talksport believes that PSG are willing to offer the England left-back a three-year contract as they look to yet further bolster their already impressive squad.

Cole is said to be unhappy with the offer of a new one-year deal from Chelsea and currently has less than 12 months remaining on his current contract.

Chelsea have a very clear policy of only offering players over 30 a one-year deal, but Talksport believes that Cole was disappointed with the offer made and could decide to leave in January.

Cole would be available on a free transfer at the end of the season if he refused to put pen-to-paper on a new deal, while PSG could decide to make an offer in January if they feel they need further reinforcements.

The French side were the biggest spenders in the summer transfer window paying close to £115million on the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Lucas Moura and Ezequial Lavezzi.

PSG are desperate to win the Ligue 1 title this season, while they are also hoping to put in a good performance in the Champions League.

In Carlo Ancelotti, they also have a manager who has previously worked with Cole and may attempt to persuade him to extend his career playing in Ligie 1.

Cole made the only previous move of his career back in 2006 when he was unhappy with the terms of a new contract that Arsenal had offered him.

His decision to move to one of Arsenal's bitter rivals made him unpopular with the Gunners fans, but Cole has always suggested that it was a move based on football terms and the possibility of winning more silverware.

Having now won the Champions League, he has won every trophy available playing in England and may look to France as a new challenge.
