One player we have been linked with for a number of seasons is Lyon defender Aly Cissokho.
There’s no doubt that Benoit Assou-Ekotto is cemented as our number one left-back, but do Danny Rose and Kyle Naughton provide enough quality cover? It remains to be seen what the plans are for Naughton this campaign, the former Sheffield United player spent last term on loan at Norwich City.
Anyhow, the Cissokho rumours have popped their head back up today after Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said the Serie A side are not interested in the 24-year-old.
“On the left side, we have considered many solutions before Balzaretti,” De Laurentiis is quoted as saying in La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Cissokho is not one of these solutions.”
Hopefully Levy and AVB are focusing first on bringing in another top quality forward ahead of the Newcastle match.
