Peter Crouch Tells Exiting Chelsea Star Ashley Cole To Join Liverpool

Big Pete gives little Ash transfer advice.

Stoke City target man Peter Crouch has advised former England teammate Ashley Cole to join Liverpool this summer, according to The Sun.

Left-back Cole, who made 107 senior appearances for England before ending his international career earlier this month, is a free agent after failing to agree a new contract with Chelsea.

Cole, 33, is currently on holiday in Los Angeles and is staying at the same hotel as Crouch, as well as Zat Knight and Shaun Wright-Phillips, who have also played for the Three Lions this century.

The footballing friends enjoyed the hot weather together earlier this week and The Sun claims that Crouch spent half an hour trying to convince Cole to sign for Liverpool.

Cole has also been linked with Manchester United, but a move to Liverpool seems more realistic as the player is unlikely to be willing to give up Champions League football.

Crouch joined Liverpool from Southampton for a transfer fee of £7m in July 2005.

The lanky striker scored 42 goals in 134 first-game games for the Merseyside club, before leaving Anfield to join Portsmouth in 2008.

Crouch has not played for England since 2010, but his international record is very impressive.

In 42 senior appearances, he bagged 22 goals.
