Liverpool join race for French defender

According to talkSPORT, Liverpool and Juventus are battling it out for the signature of Lyon’s French full back Aly Cissokho. The Red’s had reportedly been interested in Cissokho in the summer but were unable to sign him as he is held in very high regard at The Stade Gerland.

When Lyon entertained Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night, Liverpool and Juventus were both said to have had scouts there to watch the 24-year-old.

Cissokho himself was keen on a move to Newcastle United in the summer according to L’Equipe magazine. However that move did not materialise and with The Magpies now having signed Italy left back David Santon instead, it opens the door for Liverpool to sign the former Porto player.
