Aly Cissokho's Italian agent admits there is a chance his client could move to Serie A this summer.

The French defender, who is currently on the books of Lyon, has been widely courted by Italian clubs for some time, with AC Milan having come close to securing a deal in the past.

They were put off by medical problems, but have since reignited their interest.

Inter Milan and Roma are also believed to be keen, with both clubs weighing up a summer raid.

Lyon would demand a sizeable fee for a player they snapped up from Porto in 2009, but that is not expected to deter his suitors.

Expensive

The 23-year-old's representative insists no discussions have been held so far, but accepts that approaches are likely once the transfer window re-opens.

"At the moment, the transfer market is still closed and a transfer won't be easy," Fabrizio Ferrari told L'Equipe.

"We'll have to wait and see what happens in May.

"Lyon paid €15m [£13.1m] for him, making him one of the most expensive left-backs around.

"However, I don't think this would be a problem for clubs like Roma and Inter. He still has an excellent reputation in Italy."
