News today that West Brom seem to fancy their chances of signing wantaway Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko, who at the moment is with the French squad preparing for tonight’s game Albania and Moussa may even get a start for France tonight.
Moussa had made it clear he wants to leave second division Newcastle United and move to Arsenal, but no move from the London club to sign Moussa yet, but West Brom are interested.
The Birmingham Mail today is reporting that West Brom are hoping to take advantage of his desire to remain in the Premier League this summer and give him an option to leave the Magpies.
Moussa Sissoko – West Brom interested
West Brom are not a Champions League club – but it could still be a good option for Moussa – so at least he doesn’t have the indignity of having to play in the second division of English football with Newcastle.
At least he could stay in the Premier League at the The Hawthorns.
Newcastle will not accept anything less than £20M for Sissoko – well to put it more accurately – we hope Newcastle will not sell him for less than £20M.
In truth this may not be a particularly good option from the player’s perspective, since Moussa considers himself world-class or at least very close to it.
Moussa could just wait over the summer for Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City or even Leicester City to come in for him – so he can play Champions League football next season and stay in the Premier League.
He may even accept a bid from Manchester United if they come in for him – even though they are not in the Champions League next season.
If no top Premier League team comes in for him we understand Moussa would even consider a move to Bayern Munich and be prepared play in the Bundesliga and leave England.
We think there’s a 2% chance of anything in the above three paragraphs happening this summer.
But Moussa will think the chances are a lot higher than that.
