Liverpool Encouraged To Make Offer For French Ace

By on July 23, 2011

Lyon are hoping to cash in on Liverpool target Aly Cissokho and have told the Merseysiders to contact them if they are interested.

The 23-year old is reportedly a Liverpool target who have been scouting the footballing world to fill the vacant left back position.

Paul Konchesky is one of the latest casualties who has departed from Anfield after a miserable season with the Reds. The former Fulham man was brought in by former Kop boss Roy Hodgson but the full back failed to convince the Liverpool faithful and has just been sold to Championship club Leicester City.

Liverpool tried to sign Arsenal’s Gael Clichy but the Frenchman opted for a move to the Eastlands after suggesting City are more equipped to win silverware.

Liverpool have also been linked with Everton’s Leighton Baines but the Toffees are unlikely to sell their star defender to their local rivals. Newcastle’s Luis Enrique has also been muted with a move to Anfield but the Magpies boss Alan Pardew refuses to sell the Spaniard despite the left back only have a year to run on his current deal.

Lyon appear to be receptive to an offer for Cissokho with Bernard Lacombe the official advisor to president Jean-Michel Aulas asking the Premiership club to make an offer for the player

“If Liverpool is attracted in Cissokho, they have to come to us,” he told L’Equipe.
