Spurs have joined the chase for Chelsea's out-of-contract former Arsenal defender Ashley Cole, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Cole, 33, is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of next month and his future with the south Londoners is far from clear-cut after finding himself behind Cesar Azpilicueta for much of the season.

The England international has made just 14 Premier League starts this term, but has started the Blues' last four league and European fixtures.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has already said Cole's future will be decided after Chelsea's final game of the season against Cardiff City today.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid are among the other clubs to have been linked with a move for Cole.
