According to Fotomac, Fenerbahçe are interested in signing Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko, after Ozan Tufan joined Watford on loan.

What’s the story?

Well, the Hornets recently sign Tufan from Fenerbahçe on a season-long loan, leaving the Turkish giants short in midfield.

As a result, they are keen to sign Sissoko, who has been frozen out at Spurs even since Nuno Espirito Santo replaced José Mourinho.

The 71-cap France international was left on the bench for the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Interestingly, Sissoko wasn’t even named in the squad for the 1-0 UEFA Conference League defeat to Paços de Ferreira.

Significantly, Fotomac believe the 32-year-old would be willing to join Fenerbahçe, if they can agree a fee with Tottenham.

Without a doubt, Tottenham need to offload Sissoko.

His enormous £80,000-a-week wages are not befitting of his minor role in Nuno’s squad, to say the least.

That massive salary could be significant in helping to lure a new signing to N17, so it is imperative that Tottenham get rid of the ex-Newcastle man.

In truth, Watford might’ve done Spurs a big favour by signing Tufan.

How? Well, it has led to Fenerbahçe needing to sign Sissoko to replace him, a player who Nuno wants gone.

If he departs north London, and Spurs can attract an exciting signing using the spare wages, it would be exceptional business.
