Lyon join Liverpool in chase to sign Newcastle ace Enrique
Newcastle's sought-after defender Jose Enrique is being targeted by French giants Lyon.
The 25-year-old left-back has attracted a host of admirers this season, with Liverpool reportedly keen on the Spaniard with current full-back Fabio Aurelio regularly struggling with injury.
Youngster John Flanagan, 18, has been drafted in as cover this year and, despite a string of impressive performances, manager Kenny Dalglish is said to want someone more experienced.
But, according to reports in France, Lyon are looking to replace Aly Cissokho, who could leave for Inter Milan this summer, and have earmarked Enrique as the man they want to fill the void.
Enrique joined Newcastle in 2007 in a £6million deal from Spanish side Villarreal and has gone on to make 128 appearances at the club.
