Ashley Cole has spoken to Paris Saint Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti about a summer switch to the Ligue 1 club, according to reports in France.
The Chelsea left-back is out of contract in the summer and is yet to sign a new deal to extend his six-year spell at Stamford Bridge.
That has led to speculation linking the 31-year-old with both PSG and Manchester United, but it appears that the former have shot ahead in the race for Cole's signature.
And Le 10 Sport claim that former Chelsea boss Ancelotti has called Cole to sound him out ahead of a potential summer move.
If Cole did join the big-spending French club he would be playing alongside stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi, with PSG making waves since being bought by their Qatari owners.
