Mali international and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, Mohamed Sissoko is now training with AS Monaco after approaching the principality side and their manager Claudio Ranieri.
The 28-year-old Mali international spent the last six months on loan at Italian Serie A side Fiorentina but he is looking for a more familiar environment, and believes he can find it thanks to the Italian coach.
"I asked to come and train here. I know Ranieri well. He coached me at both Valencia and Juventus."
Ranieri certainly has faith in Sissoko, having paid Liverpool ten million euros to secure the midfielder's services when in charge of Juventus in 2008.
