Chelsea hero Ashley Cole could be set for a shock return to the Premier League, with Crystal Palace looking to bring him into the club.
Cole left Chelsea at the end of last season after a trophy laden spell with the Blues, choosing to leave England behind and make an attempt at establishing himself in Serie A.
He moved to last season’s second placed finishers Roma, but has struggled to settle since joining the capital city club.
As a result, there have been constant rumours that he is on the cusp of moving back to the Premier League.
Palace might offer him a route back home, with the Selhurst Park side looking to sign him on a second loan spell.
He previously played for the London side on loan from former club Arsenal in the 1999/2000 season, making 14 appearances and scoring one goal.
A return to London, where he spent his entire career prior to his move to Italy, would appeal to him, according to the Daily Mail.
