Man City boss Mancini chasing Lyon fullback Cissokho

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is keen on Lyon left-back Aly Cissokho.

The Guardian says Mancini could also be construed as having reservations about Aleksandar Kolarov given his interest in Cissokho, a 23-year-old who briefly took over from Patrice Evra as France's first-choice left-back when the Manchester United player was serving his post-World Cup suspension from the national side..

Kolarov had a difficult first year in English football after his £16m signing from Lazio, and left-back has become a problem position for Mancini, with the right-footed Pablo Zabaleta often switching sides. Cissokho, however, would not be cheap. He cost £13m when Lyon brought him back to France from Porto last year.
