Despite being Chelsea's first choice left-back, Cole's current deal with the London side expires at the end of the season. Blues chairman Roman Abramovich's desire to build a young and dynamic squad has resulted in aging players like Cole offered no more than single-year extensions at a time, an arrangement the Englishman considered disrespectful to his contributions.
Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti sits at the helm of Paris Saint-Germain, and the Italian previously admitted that he would be interested in reuniting with Cole, prompting rumours that the 31-year old could leave for Ligue 1 in January.
Having played alongside Cole for six years in an Arsenal jersey, Pires told Le Sport 10 that his former team-mate was likely to be contemplating the possibility of a transfer to PSG.
"Paris may be of interest for him to all levels - sportingly, financially. It's Paris, it's France. I think he might say yes," Pires explained.
"The project of PSG attracts him. I know him well, I'm sure that he is interested. PSG will become one of the biggest clubs in Europe in the coming years, they are trying to get something strong, and he knows it can encourage him to come. There will be a great team and financially it can make a big deal."
The 1998 World Cup winner was also candid in his assessment of Cole, as he admitted that the left-back's head could be turned by the financial incentives offered by the French club.
"He played in two huge, biggest clubs in England, he won everything," Pires stated.
"He sees that the PSG is interested in him, he knows that what he [can] get financially at Chelsea, he could have it in Paris. This will attract him, it is obvious."
Chelsea travel to the Hawthorns to play high-flying West Brom in their Premier League fixture this Saturday.
