Dalglish to outmanoeuvre Arsenal for Cissokho next week
The speculation concerning Liverpool’s search for a left back is going to come to a head early next week, as we understand that Kenny Dalglish is going to table an official offer for Lyon’s 23 year old Aly Cissokho.
Just yesterday we reported that Lyon had publicly denied any contact with Liverpool concerning Cissokho, but this is about to change as Dalglish resolves to get in a quality left back to strengthen his squad.
This move by Liverpool will also outmanoeuvre other potential suitors of Cissokho, including Arsenal as Arsene Wenger has been keeping very close tabs on the French international. Italian Serie A side Roma are also rumoured to be interested in the player.
If Dalglish’s approach for Cissokho is rebuffed by Lyon, it is likely that Liverpool will return to looking at Newcastle United’s Jose Enrique who they also have been linked to since the turn of the year.
