Kenny Dalglish
Dalglish is an important part of Liverpool, according to Lawrenson.

Liverpool and Newcastle target Aly Cissokho has revealed that he is unsure of where his next step lies, as contract talks continue with the Lyon left-back.

While Kenny Dalglish signed Jose Enrique in the summer over the France international, Cissokho continues to be linked to a possible move to Anfield to create more depth in the squad as they fight for a place in next season's Champions League.

And Liverpool aren't the only side chasing the star, with Newcastle also said to be on the lookout for a replacement for Enrique, after he left the Toon for Merseyside in the summer.

Cissokho has now come out to address the rumours of a move abroad, insisting that he is only looking at his future day by day, and will worry about January when it happens.

"There is nothing concrete so far," he told L'Equipe.

"I know what the club is expecting from me.

"Everything that is rumoured is of no importance to me, I don't even need to deny things because I am focused on my own season."

Lyon are currently undergoing financial turmoil, and the club has revealed that some big name players may have to depart in the coming transfer windows to balance the Ligue 1 side's bank books.

Cissokho is one of the biggest names at Lyon, along with young stars Hugo Lloris and Yoann Gourcuff. As a result, the 24 year old looks set for a move to the Premier League in either the next transfer window or the summer.

He's said to be worth around £9 million, and Liverpool would easily be able to afford the transfer fee. Newcastle might struggle, with the north eastern club insisting that despite garnering over £40 million from the sale of Andy Carroll and Enrique to the Reds, they have spent a great deal of that amount on wages and scouting new talent.

And with the Toon's current form, should the side not have many injury problems in the new year, they may not have the need for a left-back that was initially thought.

Liverpool have suffered from a mixed start to the season, on the other hand, and while the side defeated Chelsea 2-1 at the weekend, they haven't been able to defeat newly promoted sides Swansea or Norwich, and are currently still outside the top four at sixth in the Premier League table.

And should Enrique suffer an injury at Liverpool, the club will need depth to challenge for trophies as the season hits the business end. As a result, Dalglish could end up in another transfer tussle with Newcastle for the third transfer window running.
