New York City FC target Roma fullback Cole

New York City FC are chasing AS Roma defender Ashley Cole. The People says Cole is on course to follow former Chelsea and England pal Frank Lampard to New York City FC.

The 33-year-old Roma defender is a target for the new Major League Soccer franchise, who want top European players for their inaugural season in 2015.

Cole, who left Chelsea for Serie ARoma last summer , fits the ideal profile for the New York operation, who are jointly owned by Manchester City and the New York Yankees.

He has had some difficult moments with the Italians, notably in the Champions League when he was terrorised by Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben and substituted at half-time in a 7-1 home thrashing .
