Liverpool have agreed a deal in principle to sign Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho on a season’s loan. Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has been chasing a left-back all summer to provide competition for Jose Enrique.
The club have backed away from a move to sign Benfica’s Lorenzo Melgarejo on loan, while they have been unable to agree a deal with Granada for Guilherme Siqueira.
Cissokho is expected to travel to Merseyside next week to have a medical and discuss personal terms, sources said.
The 25-year-old France international joined Valencia from Lyon in August 2012, having previously played in Portugal for Vitoria Setubal and Porto.
