Report: Club want 71-cap Tottenham man after Watford took their player, he's willing to join
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.
Watford may have done Tottenham a favour
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.
