Liverpool defender Aly Cissokho will definitely leave Anfield this summer, according to the on-loan Valencia star's agent, Fabrizio Ferrari.

The 26-year-old has struggled to make a significant impact on Merseyside since arriving from the Mestalla on a season-long deal back in August.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers brought Cissokho in with a view to making the move permanent, but the Frenchman has been largely disappointing in 2013/14.

He'll return to his parent club in La Liga, but it's also believed that Valencia want to get the full-back off their wage-bill, with former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez - now in charge of Napoli in Italy - mooted as an admirer.

"Cissokho will definitely leave Liverpool," confirmed Ferrari in an interview with

However, the representative also played down suggestions his client could switch to Stadio San Paolo, despite the fact he was spotted in attendance at a recent Serie 'A' game against Roma.

"He was curious to see a game in the Italian league, and I've advised [him] to see that game, because I thought [it was] one of the most important games of our league.

"In addition to fun from [a] football point of view, it is also fun from the sidelines. He told me that it's fun to see a game at the San Paolo Stadium."

Benitez is already well stocked at left-back with Colombian star Juan Zuniga and the January signing of Faouzi Ghoulam, and so Ferrari has questioned whether Napoli require Cissokho's services, given that he'll be looking for regular first-team football.

"I do not think that Napoli need a left-back," he concluded. "They've already signed Ghoulam and let's not forget that in that role is Juan Camilo Zuniga.

"I do not think that Napoli can give away the Colombian."
