Liverpool have been boosted in their pursuit of French international defender Aly Cissokho.
The Lyon left back has been heavily linked with a move to England in recent months, with Kenny Dalglish thought to be favourite to bring the player to England.
With the Merseysiders searching for a player permanently in the position, Jose Enrique, Leighton Baines and Taye Taiwo have all been linked with a move to Anfield.
Cissokho is another name in the Liverpool frame, and now Lyon coach Remi Garde has reveled that the club will listen to offers that match their valuation.
"Aly is an important player for us, but if an offer matches our expectation, he is likely to go," Garde told L'Equipe.
It's thought that Liverpool will need to offer in the region of £8 million to bring the player to the Barclays Premier League, with further reports in France claiming a bid from the Reds is imminent.
Liverpool have been searching for a replacement for Paul Konchesky for some time now, with the former Fulham full back expected to leave permanently following a loan spell at Nottingham Forest last term.
Dalglish has been working alongside Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli in an effort to bring targets to the club, with Jordan Henderson the first to move for a reported £20 million three weeks ago.
Charlie Adam has since followed, continuing the club's policy of bringing young talent to Anfield under the stewardship of American owners FSG, and with more money to spend Dalglish appears set to bring more players to Liverpool during the transfer window.
