Liverpool face challenge for French star

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are interested in landing Aly Cissokho this summer, but will have to ward off interest from Napoli to land the talented full-back say talkSPORT.

 

Both Liverpool and Manchester United have expressed an interest in the Lyon defender in the past and were linked with a move for him in the January transfer window.

 

While a deal failed to materialise Liverpool are ready to renew their interest this summer, but they face competition from Napoli for the 24-year-old.

 

TalkSPORT suggests, quoting reports in France, that Cissokho is ready to quit Lyon this summer and sign on the dotted line abroad, and with United reportedly in talks over a deal with Everton for Leighton Baines, Liverpool will go head to head with Napoli for his signature.

 

Liverpool can call upon the services of Jose Enrique at left-back but are said to be in the market for cover for the Spaniard, whose performances tailed off fairly dramatically towards the end of the season.

 

Lyon will demand around £6 million for Cissokho this summer, a fee which should trouble neither Liverpool or Napoli.
