Anfield side said to have snapped up Valencia full-back.

Liverpool have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Valencia full-back Aly Cissokho according to the Shields Gazette.

The source claims that the Anfield side have beaten Sunderland in the pursuit of the 25 year old French international who would become Brendan Rodgers’ fifth signing of the summer.

Cissokho has been linked with Liverpool for some time and it appears that Rodgers has won the race to bring in the attack minded left-back who can also play in more advanced wing-back position and will presumably challenge Spaniard Jose Enrique for the first team spot.
