Cissokho eager to leave Lyon

Aly Cissokho would be open to a move from Lyon this summer, with England or Italy his preferred destination, his agent has said.

France international Cissokho has been linked with number of clubs in England, including Manchester United, Tottenham, Sunderland and Newcastle, as well as Inter Milan and Napoli in Serie A - but the €11 million being demanded by his club could be a stumbling block.

Speaking to France Football, his brother and agent Mamadou Cissokho said: "The preference would be to depart. Aly wishes to discover a new challenge. If he has to stay he will, and he will do his job - but if there is an opportunity, he will seize it."

Cissokho joined Lyon from FC Porto for a reported €15 million in July 2009 after a potential transfer to AC Milan fell through. Now deemed surplus to requirements at the Stade Gerland, and having been criticised publicly by the Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, the full-back is hoping the club will lower their asking price.

"The priority is England or Italy. However, there have been no concrete offers as yet, even though Lyon are keen to sell," Mamadou Cissokho added.

"Aulas made a show in the press and now he has to take his words into consideration and be sensible about a fee. If he doesn't want the player, he has to let him leave for the right price. €11 million for a full-back is impossible nowadays."
