Moussa Sissoko is a target for French club Marseille but is targeting a Premier League stay, according to The Daily Mail.

The 27-year-old has endured a torrid first season at Tottenham since joining from Newcastle United for £30 million last summer.

Sissoko is Spurs’ joint-record signing, but the club is expected to cut their losses this season in order to get him off the wage bill.

The Mail believes Marseille are monitoring Sissoko’s situation and that the Ligue 1 club “know he wants to quit the Tottenham.”

However, the player is apparently hopefully he can secure a transfer to another Premier League side.

Everton were close to signing Sissoko before Spurs swooped on deadline day last August. Perhaps the Toffees will reignite their interest if they still rate the midfielder.

Reports suggest Sissoko is one of five players expected to leave Tottenham this summer alongside Kyle Walker, Georges-Kevin NKoudou, Vincent Janssen and Michel Vorm.



  1. Should be given more opportunities.
    Let him start, say, 5 to 7 matches consecutively to assess him genuinely

  2. “The 27-year-old has endured a torrid first season at Tottenham…”

    Nothing of the sort has happened. Had he played match after match and been booed by lots of supporters each time, then you could say he’d had a ‘torrid’ first season. His actual problem has been off-target passing, or the passed ball not getting very far, and his imprecise passes being easily intercepted. Also that ball-control is not his strength, noticeable in a team of such precise passers. In his favour, he can run with the ball through the centre or along a wing, he is physically strong and sometimes he can link up nicely with other players.
