Premier League trio Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Liverpool are now preparing a move to sign Valencia defender Aly Cissokho at the end of the season, according to the Express. The 25-year-old joined the Spanish club in the summer of 2012 from Lyon.
The report claims the left-back is currently unhappy with the La Liga side and is now considering a move away from Valencia this summer. The French international was strongly linked with a move to Liverpool earlier and are now being joined by their arch rivals Everton and Andre Villas-Boas' side.
Cissokho was impressive for the Spanish club during the first half of the current campaign. However, the ex-Lyon player has now failed to feature regularly and hinted a move away from Mestalla at the end of the season could be on the cards.
"In the second part of the season I don't have as much playing time, unlike the first. Are English clubs my future? I am proud that my name is matched with these clubs but I'm fine here. I just hope to play more," the Express quoted Cissokho as saying.
The left-back, who is a Manchester United fan, was earlier flattered to be linked with a move to Anfield. The addition of the France international to either Spurs, Everton or Liverpool will bolster their squad and strengthen their defence.
Lloris Disappointed After Spain Defeat
Meanwhile, Spurs and France stopper Hugo Lloris was disappointed after the French lost their international tie against World Champions Spain. The defeat has now seen them lose the top spot in Group I as Barcelona star Pedro netted the only goal of the game.
"It's a shame. We had a great opportunity to keep first place, but we did not have the desired success. We made a lot of chances as we have seen tonight. "At the Euros, there was no contest, but the last two meetings have been encouraging because they have been against the best team in the world. They are always in control and possession of the ball," Lloris said.
