Aston Villa coach Remi Garde has admitted his interest in signing the Chelsea legend Ashley Cole. The proposed transfer can go through as soon as the next month if all the negotiations are completed smoothly. Cole can leave as a free agent from his current club, AS Roma where he is out of favour with Rudi Garcia.

Aston Villa have been struggling mightily in the league especially due to injuries in defence. The squad is a relatively young one and is crippled of confidence and is lacking leadership. Cole’s mooted move can be an attempt to rectify this issue.

Further, Jordan Amavi, the first choice left back for Aston Villa, has picked up a serious knee injury which has ruled him out for the season with his immediate replacement, Kieran Richardson failing to make an impression on Garde.

Ashley Cole has been having a torrid time at the Rome club with settling difficulties followed by adaptability problems. He has not played for Roma since March and is widely expected to move on at the end of his contract.

His struggles at Roma do not change the fact that for a long stretch of time, Cole was the best in his position in the world with extremely robust defending a hallmark of his game. He has won three EPL titles, six FA Cups and the UEFA Champions League during his time with Chelsea and Arsenal.

“Every good player is interesting for me and Ashley is a good player.” Garde said.

“He is someone who has the experience but he didn’t play for a while now. Experience is also something we need. I will speak soon with the club and I’m already working on the January window. We know what we want to do.”
