Liverpool Up Aly Cissokho Pursuit
Liverpool have upped their interest in Aly Cissokho after missing out on Gael Clichy to Manchester City. The Reds are reportedly ready to make a Â£10m move for the Lyon left-back and would like him on board before the club depart for their tour of Asia next week. Clichy was believed to be Liverpoolâ€™s first choice to fill a problem position this summer, but the lure of instant success and, undoubtedly, money saw the Frenchman move to Eastlands for Â£7m. With Newcastle asking around Â£15m for Jose Enrique Kenny Dalglish has been forced to look further afield to identify a solution for the left-back spot. Despite his sketchy form last season Cissokho is still held in high regard and the club are confident in his ability to overcome his consistency issues. But a deal is by no means a formality as Arsenal are also rumoured to be interested in the 23-year-old as they look to replace the departed Clichy.
