Cissokho staying at Lyon despite Liverpool interest

Long term Liverpool target Aly Cissokho is set to stay at French club Olympique Lyonnais talkSPORT understands. Red’s boss Kenny Dalglish was very interested in the French left back throughout the summer but a transfer never materialised despite some reports suggesting the deal was near completion.

Newcastle were also interested in Cissokho, but Juventus appear to be Liverpool’s main rivals if a bidding war was to break out.

However, Liverpool did purchase Jose Enrique from Newcastle United in the transfer window so their need for a left back will have declined. So the news that Cissokho appears to be staying at the Stade Gerland might not be of great significance to those at Anfield, but more so the Serie A outfit Juventus.
