Yesterday we saw reports suggesting Tottenham have turned their attentions to Newcastle United’s Moussa Sissoko after giving up on Real Madrid playmaker Isco.
It appears those reports are true, with Sky Sports now suggesting Spurs have made a £16 bid for the Newcastle outcast.
The Mapgpies had initially slapped a massive £35 million asking price on Sissoko. Sky now report Newcastle want £30 million for the Frenchman, but Tottenham are unwilling to pay above £20 million.
Despite a poor campaign for his club last term, Sissoko impressed with a string of good performances for France at Euro 2016. He has been linked with a number of European giants this summer, including Real Madrid and Juventus.
But it looks like Spurs are the only club genuinely interested in taking the player off Newcastle’s hands on deadline day.
The France national team has revealed on Twitter that Sissoko has left their training camp to finalise a transfer.

Tottenham have sold Nacer Chadli and Ryan Mason for a combined £26 million over the last 48 hours, money that would fund a potential move for Sissoko.
The club is also excepted to announce the signings of Georges-Kevin N’Koudou and Pau Lopez on deadline day.
