Milan rekindle Cissokho interest

Milan are rekindling their interest in Lyon defender Aly Cissokho, according to the player's Italian representative Fabrizio Ferrari.

The Rossoneri agreed a deal to sign Cissokho from Porto in 2009 only to pull out of the transfer on the recommendation of the club's doctor.

Cissokho ended up joining Lyon in a move worth €15m while Milan have yet to address their longstanding problem at the left-back position.

"Milan are interested in several players. He is probably one of them," Ferrari said.

"We'll need to see if the decision will fall to him again and if Lyon are prepared to sell him.

"Aly is part of a big club who are fighting for the Champions League. He is concentrating on doing well."

Milan are also being linked with Palermo's Italy international Mattia Cassani.
