Ashley Cole: Would be keen on a move to PSG, according to Robert Pires

The England defender's contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season and so far talks over an extension have failed to find a resolution.

It is believed Chelsea are only prepared to offer the 31-year-old a one-year extension, while Cole would prefer a longer deal.

That has led to speculation the former Arsenal trainee may consider a move away from west London, with big-spending PSG linked with a swoop.

They would certainly have the finances to more than match Cole's wages at the Bridge and his former Gunners team-mate Pires believes he would be the ideal signing for the Ligue 1 club.

The 39-year-old remains friends with Cole and is sure he would be keen on a move to the French capital.

"Paris could be interesting for him, at a sporting level and a financial level," said the former Arsenal, Villarreal and Aston Villa winger.

"He could say okay to Paris. The plans attract him, I know him well and I'm sure he is interested."
