Tottenham could allow Moussa Sissoko to leave on loan this summer, according to reports in Italy.
Napoli are apparently exploring the option of taking Sissoko on loan for a season, meaning he would return to Tottenham next summer with just one year remaining on his contract.
In some ways it makes sense. If Spurs can’t sell him for a decent fee this summer, perhaps having another club pay his wages for a year is good way to save some money.
Then the Londoners can attempt to sell the Frenchman next summer, when more suitors might be alerted to his contract solution.
In any case, Sissoko is unlikely to get much first-team football next term, especially if Tottenham strengthen in midfield – so his best bet would be to leave.
