Everton favourites to sign Aly Cissokho

Updated: July 23, 2012

Everton have emerged as one of the front runners to sign Lyon left back Aly Cissokho according to football 365 but will have to fight off interest from Benfica and Napoli to do so.

Cissokho, 24, is poised to end his four season spell at the Stade Gerland after the French club signalled their willingness to cash in on their defender according to the Italian news site CalcioMercato.com.

The French full back has earned several call ups to the French national squad but has only made a single appearance due to the predominance of Patrice Evra and Gael Clichy.

With the £7 million rated full back being linked with a Goodison Park switch, it is looking ever more likely that Manchester United target, Leighton Baines, will make the move to Old Trafford this summer.
