Moussa Sissoko enjoyed an outstanding tournament with the French side at the Euros as they finished runners up to Portugal. His fine form didn’t go unnoticed as Arsenal, Liverpool, PSG, Dortmund, Hamburg and Juventus are all set to battle for his signature.
Bookmakers have tipped Arsenal 2/1 as favourites to sign £35m rated star Sissoko. Yes you heard me right after an impressive Euros, Rafa Benitez has slammed a hefty price tag of £35m on the tenacious midfielder. This fee has sparked major disagreements between Sissoko’s agent and Newcastle’s board, as the board directors have been accused of breaking an agreement to sell the 26-year-old to any club willing to pay £21million for him following their relegation.
Sissoko is keen to leave Newcastle after three and half years following their relegation to the Championship, his desire to play in the European champions league. Furthermore his public come and get me plea to Arsenal, makes this move a match made in heaven.
Rafa Benitez has told Sissoko he is key to his plans in guiding Newcastle back to the English premier league. The 26-year-old is apparently not surprised by Newcastle’s stand considering his fine form and the club’s desire to hold on to their top stars
