Liverpool look to have beaten rivals Sunderland to the signature of Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho, with the player agreeing terms at Anfield, according to the Shields Gazette.
The Black Cats made an enquiry for Cissokho last month with manager Paolo Di Canio left frustrated in his attempts to bring in a new fullback at the Stadium of Light after Spurs blocked their attempts to re-loan Danny Rose.
Rose enjoyed a successful season during his short stint on Wearside in the 2012/13 campaign but the North East club have been forced into looking elsewhere for a left-back.
And their search for a new defender could continue with news that Liverpool have agreed terms with Cissokho.
Reports in Spain yesterday claimed the Valencia star has agreed on a move to Anfield, having been linked with the move for much of the summer.
Cissokho would become Liverpool’s fifth summer signing following the acquisitions of Simon Mignolet, Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas.
Liverpool’s interest in the Frenchman comes as they missed out on Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand, who has decided to stay at Stamford Bridge and try to establish himself as Ashley Cole’s long-term replacement.
According to the reports in Spain, Sissokho will move to Merseyside on a one-year loan deal with the option of making the transfer permanent in 12 months’ time.
