San Siro side want Stamford Bridge defender.
Italian giants AC Milan are ready to make a January offer to sign Chelsea left-back according to CalcioMercato.
A move to AC Milan may tempt the 31 year old more than a potential move to another Premier League side and the nearer Cole gets to the end of his current deal the more likely such a departure becomes.
Chelsea are probably right to stick to their guns with regard to their contractual policy, not least as any change they make will apply to Frank Lampard and other older players nearing the end of their contracts and any move to offer Ashley Cole a longer deal will set a precedent, one that they didn’t feel the need to consider when allowing Didier Drogba to leave the club last summer.
Though AC Milan are not having the best of seasons a move to the Serie A side could interest the former Arsenal man as a new challenge.
Cole is into his seventh season at Stamford Bridge and has racked up 271 appearances for the Blues, winning a Premier League titles, four FA Cups, a League Cup and a Champions League winners medal in the process.
