Liverpool target £9m French international as 'priority' signing - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are once again being linked with a move for French international defender Aly Cissokho.

The Lyon left back, who made his only Les Bleus appearance against Norway in 2010, was linked with an Anfield switch in January following the arrival of Kenny Dalglish on Merseyside.

TalkSPORT now claims that the Reds are again considering a move for the 23-year-old, with the report going on to state that Liverpool would have to pay in the region of £9 million for the player.

Cissokho is seen as the ideal replacement for Paul Konchesky at Liverpool, who quickly fell out-of-favour at the club following the departure of former manager Roy Hodgson in January.

The left back spent the later stages of the season on loan at Nottingham Forest in the Npower Championship, and has been linked with a move to Wolves and Portsmouth as recently as this week.


Whilst young England international Jack Robinson rose to the challenge when stepping up to the Liverpool senior side at the end of last season, Dalglish is searching for a proven player in the position to help shore up the club's defence next season.

With a winger and striker also on the agenda at Liverpool, it promises to be a busy few months for the Scot after securing the services of Jordan Henderson for a reported £20 million a fortnight ago.

However, Dalglish will face competition for the signature, with Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini also interested in bringing the player to England after losing Jerome Boateng to Bayern Munich.
