FTN: Ashley Cole, Rossi, Morata and Werner

Cole Set for Derby

Ashley Cole is reportedly set to join former team-mate Frank Lampard at Derby County. Lampard, who is now manager at Derby, is keen to bring Cole in until the end of the season.

The former Chelsea left-back is currently out of contract. He was released by LA Galaxy at the end of last season. The 38-year-old last played in England in 2014, following his release by the Blues.

Short Term Deal for Rossi at Spurs?

Giuseppe Rossi is reportedly a target for Spurs. The Italian is currently training with former club Manchester United. This is as he searches for a new club, having left Genoa last season.

Any deal is likely to be a pay-as-you-play deal. This is due to Rossi’s injury record. However, Spurs are looking to sign another striker after Harry Kane’s injury.

Morata Edging Closer to a Move?

Alvaro Morata is close to sealing his move away from Chelsea. According to Sky Sports, he is in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid. However, it is not known whether it will be a permanent transfer or a loan. Chelsea value the striker at £45 million.

Morata has had a torrid time in England. He currently has just five goals in the Premier League this season. Having signed for £75 million, Chelsea would have expected more from the Spaniard. His departure may also signal the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain.

Timo Werner to Liverpool?

Timo Werner is reportedly attracting interest from Liverpool. The German has 11 Bundesliga goals this season. He would add competition to Roberto Firmino, and would suit Liverpool’s new 4-2-3-1 system.

The Reds may face competition for Werner. Bayern Munich are also reportedly keen in the German youngster.
