Newcastle have been linked recently with Toulouse French International midfielder Moussa Sissoko, but it looks like Newcastle may have to battle it out with Juventus for the 23 year-old, who becomes a free agent in the summer.
Moussa Sissoko – Juventus also interested
Newcastle seem to be in the driving seat to sign the player either in January for a nominal fee, or next summer as a free agent, but there are various reports in Italy that the Italian Champions want to lure him to Turin.
Juventus want to sign the 23 year-old in the January transfer window, although the player has already said he has been told by his French team-mate Yohan Cabaye, that Newcastle are a great club with fantastic fan support.
Juventus’ Director General, Beppe Marotta, is being reported as already having made an approach for Sissoko with his French club Toulouse, in an attempt to lure the 5 times capped French International to Juventus.
However, it seems that Sissoko would be very keen to join the Magpies, and the box-to-box midfielder has already said he is very keen to play in the Premier League – the world’s best football league.
From what we can tell, it seems that Newcastle are in the lead position for this player, who has played for Toulouse 191 times with 23 goals, and is a 6’2″ central midfielder who plays in the style of the great Patrick Vieira.
Moussa would be a fantastic acquisition for Newcastle.
