Manchester City are moving for Marseille striker Djibril Cisse.

The Mirror says City boss Mark Hughes is making inquiries to find out if Marseille will let him have the former Liverpool hitman who is desperate to come back to England - and the north west in particular.

The colourful Frenchman is unsettled in France and his family are still based in Cheshire. He would jump at the chance of joining City if Hughes can come to an agreement with Marseille.
