Newcastle are targeting Lyon left-back Aly Cissokho, with Alan Pardew touting the Frenchman as a 'first choice Jose Enrique replacement', according to Talksport.

Enrique confirmed a deal with Liverpool on Friday, after being a long-standing target for the Merseyside club.

The signing has left a hole in Newcastle’s backline, and Pardew is reportedly hoping to fill the gap before the Toon’s next match against Sunderland.


Cissokho was also a transfer target for Liverpool, but the club preferred to take on Enrique, and Newcastle will now chase the 23-year-old in the hopes of making a fifth French signing for the summer.

The defender is said to be worth £8 million, which Newcastle could easily afford, with over £35 million in the transfer kitty from Andy Carroll and Enrique’s sales.
