According to The Evening Standard, Trabzonspor are finding Tottenham to be tough negotiators in their bid to sign £30million midfield flop Moussa Sissoko.
Both sides haven’t reached a conclusion yet, with Spurs in favour of a permanent exit for the 27-year-old, while the Turkish giants lean towards a season-long loan.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino, though insists Sissoko could still have a future at the club, it’s said the former Newcastle man wants to move on instead after his nightmare of a debut season.
According to Trabzonspor vice-president Gencaga Meric, the Marseille-target has expressed his desires to switch to Turkey, “Sissoko is keen on joining, we have spoken with him and talks went well. We have yet to convince Tottenham or their manager. Tottenham want to recoup most of what they invested in Sissoko but we want him on loan. We have made our offer and are waiting for a decision.”
While both teams have found a common ground hard to reach, though, the fact remains that Sissoko won’t be playing for Spurs next term. All things being equal.
He could only feature in the last game of the pre-season having been allegedly left off the squad for their American tour due to an illness.
Sissoko failed to register a goal in the whole of 2016-17 for Spurs, and it’s why they are more than willing to see his back.
Per adventure they do agree to a loan move at last, chances are that it’d take a whole lot of top eye-catching performances from the French midfielder to convince them into wanting him back.
The first impression Mousa Sissoko has left on Tottenham has been that bad.
