Kenny Dalglish has reportedly been on a scouting mission to run the rule over French pair Hugo Lloris and Aly Cissokho.

According to, the Scot was in France on Wednesday night to watch Lyon against Montpellier and used it as an opportunity to assess goalkeeper Lloris and left-back Cissokho.

The Liverpool boss was said to be sufficiently impressed with the Lyon duo, but whether or not any formal enquiries have been made remains to be seen. had previously claimed that Liverpool is a 'likely destination' for 23-year-old Cissokho after his representative based in Italy revealed there has been strong interest in his client from England.

"I don't know which English clubs are involved as I'm his agent for Italy," Fabrizio Ferrari said. "But his agent told me several English clubs are interested."


Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli was reportedly impressed by Cissokho while he occupied the same role with Saint-Etienne and has earmarked him as a potential recruit.

The Reds are understood to have identified the acquisition of a new left-back as a transfer window priority and Cissokho is just one of several Liverpool targets.

Lloris, meanwhile, has reportedly been lined-up by Liverpool should Pepe Reina leave Anfield in the summer, although the Spanish shot-stopper has recently hinted he intends to remain on Merseyside.
