The Newcastle United fans in The Transfer Tavern are taking part in a darts tournament and discussing reports linking an Italian side with one of their midfield players.
The Independent is reporting that Napoli are readying a bid to land Moussa Sissoko this month and take him to Serie A.
It is believed that Newcastle would want a minimum of £25 million for the player who joined the club for £1.5 million during Alan Pardew’s time as manager of the club.
The 26 year old has spent three successful seasons at St James Park and has scored 10 times in 100 appearances for the Premier League side.
Newcastle manager Steve McClaren will be keen to hold on to the combative midfield who has been one of the first names on his team sheet during his time at the club.
A move to Napoli could be just what Sissoko needs and he expressed his desire to play in the Champions League to French media outlet Le Parisien recently saying:
“I always want [to play in the Champions League], but everything is about timing. For now, I do not play it, but I’m patient. This may come in a year or two years. I await my hour calmly.”
The Newcastle fans in The Transfer Tavern are hopeful that Sissoko will remain with the club as they see him as an important part of the team.
