Genoa bid for French defender

Serie A high-flyers Genoa are stepping up their efforts to sign Nantes defender Issa Cissokho, French media outlet L’Equipe can reveal.

The Rossoblu are not exactly spoilt for options at full-back positions and they have identified the French footballer as the man who can help address the issue.

Genoa recently had a bid rejected for the 30-year-old defender, but they are set to return with an improved offer.

Issa Cissokho needed quite a while to start proving his worth, having spent his early career in the lower echelons of France’s league system.

The 2010 switch to Nantes helped the full-back make it to the big stage and he has since helped the Canaries gain promotion to Ligue 1 before going on to make 68 top flight appearances over the past two seasons.

While Genoa clearly lead the chase for his signature, clubs from Turkey and Spain are keen as well.
