According to talkSPORT, Porto, Lille and Fiorentina are in a three-way fight to sign Aston Villa defender Aly Cissokho.
The 27-year-old full-back has become surplus to requirements at Villa Park following the arrival of highly-rated Jordan Amavi from Nice.
talkSPORT suggest that Portuguese outfit Porto have identified Cissokho as a top target, and are prepared to bid £3 million for a man they sold to Lyon back in 2009.
Cissokho joined Villa on a four-year deal last summer after a brief loan spell with Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool and is keen to get more game time next season.
The Frenchman made 25 league appearances throughout the previous campaign, despite not featuring from February onwards.
He won 55% of his total duels throughout his involvement, including 71% of his headed duels, while he completed 75% of his attempted passes.
