Aly Cissokho is set to become Liverpool’s fifth summer signing when he completes a loan move today.

Cissokho had a medical yesterday on Merseyside and is joining from Valencia for
the season. Brendan Rodgers wants him to provide competition for Jose Enrique at left-back and has the option of making the French defender’s move permanent next summer for £4million.

Rodgers hopes to hear today if he has been successful in his £28m move for Willian from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.
