The on / off transfer of Lyon’s Hugo Lloris may be classed in the ‘off’ category at the moment but a surprise suggestion doing the rounds claims that Spurs may be returning to the French club for their left back Aly Cissokho.
Those claims go on to suggest that talks with the club and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are stalling and that Cissokho could be a direct, like-for-like replacement at left back.
The Lyon player is 24 and has been with the club since 2009. To date, he has just one full international cap for France – a friendly against Norway in 2010.
It’s thought that £7m would be required for Cissokho’s signature but the real key to the deal is BAE. If Benny signs then this is definitely a non-starter.
