Valencia's Aly Cissokho says he has agreed a deal to join Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool - but the clubs are still finalising the terms of the transfer.
According to talkSPORT, the Anfield giant's preference would be to take the 25-year-old on loan, but Valencia are holding out for a permanent deal.
The talented left-back has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Newcastle touted as a potential destination last year.
However, a move failed to materialise and now it is Liverpool who seem destined to land the former Lyon star.
Speaking to Le 10 Sport, Cissokho said: "Liverpool have made me an offer and it is true that I have reached an agreement with them.
"It is now up to the clubs to agree terms. I expect to know more later this week."
Cissokho remains keen to secure a move to Merseyside, though he believes time is running out if he is to land a dream switch to the Premier League.
"If nothing happens this week, it probably means that I will not be going to Liverpool," he added.
"The conditions of the transfer are the problem. Liverpool prefer a loan deal with an option to buy, while Valencia want to sell straight away."
Should Cissokho join Rodgers' revolution he would become the sixth signing of the summer, with the likes of Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Simon Mignolet having all penned deals with the Anfield club.
Liverpool have made significant moves in the transfer window to date, as they chase a top four finish and Champions League qualification.
