Ashley Cole and Nigel de Jong in the wish-list of LA Galaxy
The Major League Soccer has had an ongoing tendency of attracting veteran high profile players to the American League and LA Galaxy is on the verge of signing a few well known performers during this winter transfer window.
Ashley Cole recently terminated his contract with As.Roma and the experienced defender is rumored to be in the wish-list of LA Galaxy and a deal is believed to be in the works. If reports are indeed true then Ashley Cole should be able to wear the jersey of LA Galaxy and represent the American club within the next few days.
The 35 year old defender was not able to snatch consistent playing time with As.Roma and he decided to part ways with the Italian club. At such an elevated age, Ashle Cole wants to spend his time with a club that he can play an important role and be a regular starter, this wasn’t happening for him with As.Roma as he was a substitute player.
Ac.Milan’s Nigel de Jong is another one of the players who isnt getting much time in the pitch with his club and LA Galaxy are setting their sights in the Dutch midfielder.
Nigel de Jong has a contract with Ac.Milan which runs until 2018 but considering how much he has fallen down in the pecking order of the Italian club, a move away from San Siro could indeed occur.
Ashley Cole and Nigel de Jong are just 2 of the high profile players who have been rumored on joining LA Galaxy but the MLS side is actively looking in the transfer market for more players that can reinforce the squad.
Bruce Arena believes that when all of these players are signed by LA Galaxy, they will help propel his team to the top spots of the Western Conference.
