Rumour Mill: Liverpool planning January bid for £15M Lyon winger

Liverpool has been obsessed with left-footed players recently. There are a host of left-footed already in the squad, Adam, Enrique, Downing, Agger to name a few.

michelbastos According to, Liverpool are ready to bid £15 million for Lyon winger Michel Bastos in January.

The 28 year-old winger has been a key member of the Lyon team in the three years he has been at the club following, his €18 million move from Lille in 2009.

But Bastos has never hid his desire to move one of Europe’s major leagues and he may jump at the opportunity to move to the Premier League, if Liverpool come knocking.

The Brazilian international has been linked to many clubs across Europe over the last 12 months or so, with Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester United among the teams rumoured to have been interested in signing him.

Bastos, who has been capped 10 times by Brazil and featured in every game at the 2010 World Cup, is also able to operate as a left-back, as he has done on every occasion he has played for Brazil, but he is a lot more dangerous as a winger.

Liverpool know that Lyon will be reluctant to sell one of their prized assets but they will test the French team’s resolve with an offer of £15 million, in an attempt to beat off renewed interest from Barcelona.

If this rumour are to be believed, Dalglish would want to put more pressure on Downing to perform to his best and create more competition for the left-wing position.

Liverpool given green light to sign Lyon fullback

All the press and media rumours of Liverpool FC wants a left-back but from my perspectives Emiliano Insua should be given the chance next season.

Aly Cissokho Aly Cissokho could become the answer to Liverpool's left-back problems after Lyon revealed they are willing to listen to offers.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is desperate to bring in a new left-sided defender after being forced to play Glen Johnson out of position at times last season.

After seeing his top target Gael Clichy join Manchester City, he is now looking at a number of alternatives.

Reports in France suggest one of them is Lyon's Cissokho and that a bid is imminent.

Lyon coach Remi Garde told L'Equipe that Liverpool have not yet made an offer for the 23-year-old, but he was prepared to consider any approaches.

'Aly is an important player for us, but if an offer matches our expectation, he is likely to go,' said Garde.

The French club are known to be short of cash and it is thought they are prepared to accept a bid of just £8million, despite paying £13million to sign Cissokho from Porto in 2009.

Liverpool are also believed to be interested in Newcastle United left back Jose Enrique, but face competition from Arsenal for the Spaniard's signature.
