The France international has been on Liverpool's radar for some time, while Arsenal were thought to be keen on signing the left-back during the January transfer window as manager Arsene Wenger looked to strengthen his injury-hit defence.

Cissokho's agent claimed earlier this year that Man Utd could make a move for his client at the end of the season, while Juventus and Napoli have also shown interest.

Reports in Italy have suggested Napoli have already lodged a €7.5m offer, but Lyon insist they will not let Cissokho leave unless their valuation is met.

"Discussions will not start at below €11M with any club that wishes to acquire the player," said the Ligue 1 club in a statement released via their official website.

Earlier this year, agent Ali Barat as good as called for Man Utd to sign Cissokho this summer, telling "In the summer we can open the doors to Manchester United."

United are keen on signing a left-back this summer, with Everton's Leighton Baines on their radar.
