Inter-Milan have agreed terms with Moussa Sissoko’s representatives and the next step was for the Italian giants was to put in a formal bid which is reported to be €35M for the Newcastle United midfielder.
No bid has yet been received by Newcastle, but news today that Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool, who paid Newcastle’s asking price of £25M for Georginio Wijnaldum, will join the Italian giants in the race for Moussa Sissoko.
Jurgen Klopp interested in Moussa Sissoko
France Football is reporting that Inter-Milan were to make a €35M bid (about £31M) for Moussa and Jurgen Klopp is reported as keen to compete with the Milan club for the powerful Frenchman, who was a shining star at the Euro 2016 tournament in the summer.
The 27-year-old Frenchman has also been keen to leave St James’ Park for over two years now and is pushing hard for a move away this summer.
Newcastle want £35M for Moussa and if the Reds do what they did when they entered the race for Gini Wijnaldum – they will meet the asking price of Newcastle and Moussa will quickly become a Liverpool player.
This is what Jurgen Klopp has said:
“I wait for the day when the transfer window is closed,” “I can’t believe how obsessed you all are with this.”
“What will happen we will see, I don’t know in this moment, but we do not have a preferred position to sign players.”
Newcastle will likely want the money up front in cash and the Tyneside club don’t like to sell their players on any installment plan.
Owner Mike Ashley will request the fee up front in full, otherwise Moussa Sissoko will stay at Newcastle and help us get promoted back to the Premier League next May.
If the Reds do pay out £35M for Sissoko that would be £95M Liverpool have given Newcastle in cool cash for three of our players – Andy Carroll in January, 2011, Gini Wijnaldum last month and now Moussa.
Liverpool is one of our favorite clubs.
We are also pretty sure that Liverpool is one of Moussa’s (many) dream clubs.
