Juventus are hoping to take Liverpool target Aly Cissokho in a player exchange deal for Fabio Grosso from Lyon, according to Talksport.
Cissokho has starred for Lyon since signing with the French side in 2009, and has attracted attention from numerous European clubs as a result.
Liverpool in particular have been linked to Cissokho, but in the summer Kenny Dalglish chose to purchase Jose Enrique instead to fill the position in the squad.
But should Enrique become injured, Dalglish will have limited options, and rumours have circulated that Liverpool may make another play for Cissokho in the January transfer window.
Juventus hope that the offer of Grosso, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, will tempt Lyon, and will steal the march on Liverpool in their quest to secure Cissokho’s services.
But Lyon are playing hard ball with Juventus, insisting that they take striker Vincenzo Iaquinta instead.
