Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has spoken about Moussa Sissoko and his future, or lack thereof, at Tottenham Hotspur moving forward.
But not only are there incomings, there will also probably be departures – and French midfielder Sissoko could very well be one of them.
He was a pretty prominent figure for Spurs last season, making 42 appearances, but he could only fashion one assist and one goal throughout the entire campaign, which looks as if it might be enough for his days at the club to be numbered.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, when talking about the business that Tottenham will be looking to do this window, Romano seemed to hint that the club would be happy to see him leave if the right offer came in:
“Tottenham will sign a new right-back, new centre-back, they want something new in defence, so they’re going for a new centre-back. And maybe Sissoko could leave the club, so they will look for some solution for him if the right proposal will arrive.”
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments about Moussa Sissoko at Tottenham Hotspur…
Should Spurs sell Sissoko in the summer?
This does seem like the right approach for Tottenham to make. It’s obvious that Sissoko, at the age of 31, is starting the downswing of his career and his production levels aren’t as good as they have been in previous campaigns.
And if the new manager and managing director – who presumably don’t have any sort of allegiance to players from the old regime – want to sell him on in order to raise funds for players that they feel they are more comfortable with, then there shouldn’t really be anything that should stand in their way.
Hopefully, they can get at least get a decent fee for him to make back as much of the original £30m fee they paid for him as they can.
