Liverpool are reportedly set to launch a bid to sign defender Ashley Cole before he pens a deal with Roma after being released by Chelsea.

Liverpool are poised to launch a late bid to sign Ashley Cole before he pens a deal with Roma, according to a report.

The 33-year-old was released by Chelsea at the end of the season after the Blues decided against offering the defender a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Cole and his representatives are close to sealing a deal with the Serie A side, but Liverpool are ready to swoop in with an 11th-hour offer for the former England international, reports the Daily Mail.

The left-back made 26 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions last season.
