Manchester City close in on French Ace

Manchester City are closing in on £20million-rated Lyon ace Aly Cissokho, according to The Sun.City chiefs Gary Cook and Brian Marwood flew to France earlier this week to negotiate a deal for the 23-year-old defender.The Citizens look set to clinch their first big signing of the summer with Lyon keen to sell the highly-rated full-back in order to fund their own transfer plans.Roberto Mancini has received glowing scouting reports of Cissokho; the player is a powerful and pacy left-back who likes to bomb forward.He has three years left on his contract and has captured the attention of Europe with his marauding displays since signing from Porto in 2009 for 12million.The Italian is determined to have two top-class stars for each position and wants competition for Serbian Aleksandar Kolarov.

Liverpool have also been linked with Cissokho, however the Anfield club may be priced out of a move by Citys financial power
