Yet another club has entered the bidding for Newcastle’s star midfielder Moussa Sissoko. Will Liverpool get a young stud to replace a legend?
As Arsenal and Chelsea prepare to fight each other for Newcastle United midfielder Moussan Sissoko, Liverpool has reportedly joined in the bidding war.
According to the Express, the Reds are now in the mix for the 25-year-old Frenchman who is now valued at an estimated £17 million. Sissoko has been a consistent scoring threat as a midfielder since he was a member of Toulouse in Ligue 1 as a teenager.
The French midfielder recorded at least one goal in each of his six seasons and left Ligue 1 having scored 20 goals in 192 appearances. Sissoko further improved on his reputation as a scoring threat once he joined Newcastle United, scoring 10 goals in 81 league appearances.
Chelsea may have the upper hand in the race for Sissoko’s services, as he was recently quoted saying he’d be “very happy” to play for Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
“He (Mourinho) is one of the best managers in the world. He has won so many titles… Any player would love to be coached by this man,” Sissoko said, according to the Express. “If one day I have the chance to work under his guidance, I would be very happy.”
