Former Blues boss wants to snap up Stamford Bridge defender.
Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain have made a sensational move to sign Ashley Cole.
Cole, 31, has one year left on his current contract and has yet to be offered a new deal – which has alerted PSG.
Chelsea insist the England stalwart will be offered a new deal before the end of the August transfer window, but PSG are ready to test their resolve to keep him.
They are prepared to offer vastly-experienced left-back Cole, who has also been linked with a blockbuster move to Manchester United this summer, a three-year contract.
PSG are now managed by former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti, who remains a big admirer of Cole and has been looking to sign a new left-back.

It is perhaps a tad surprising that Chelsea have not tied down Ashley Cole to a new deal and this will inevitably lead to speculation that the England international could be tempted away from Stamford Bridge and now it appear that former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to add the left-back to his rapidly improving PSG squad.
Having landed the ‘marquee’ signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic last month, Ancelotti has set his sights on 31 year old Cole and perhaps a move to the big spending Ligue 1 side would be of interest to the left-back who may feel he has achieved everything he could hope to at Chelsea.
Ashley Cole made his highly contentious move from Arsenal to West London six years ago and has been a virtual ever present ever since. Over the course of six seasons at Stamford Bridge the left back has notched up 250 appearances and secured a Premier League title, four FA Cup successes as well as a Champions League triumph.
Ancelotti’s PSG side lost out in the domestic title race to Montpellier last term and the Italian will be looking to go one better in 2012/13, indeed his Parc des Princes job may well depend on him doing so as anything less would be considered a failure given the sums the Paris side has spent over the past 18 months.
