Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Lyon’s French left-back Aly Cissokho this summer. With some reports suggesting that Cissokho is on the verge of joining Liverpool.

But today (Monday) reports are suggesting that Liverpool are not interested in signing Cissokho at all for the reported £9million. The reasons being that Lyon now want £16million for the defender which Liverpool may not want to pay. Another possible reason, if this rumour is true, that we are no longer after the 23-year-old is that Liverpool may be focusing their attention now on another option, most probably Newcastle’s Jose Enrique.

Hopefully Liverpool will continue to pursue signing a new left-back this summer if Cissokho does not join Liverpool as we need someone to come in and this does not signal that Liverpool are not going to sign a new left-back this summer.
