Speaking to Top Calcio 24, via Calciomercato.it, Italian journalist Andrea Longoni has shared more exit news out of Tottenham Hotspur – this time involving midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
The Lowdown: Spurs summer exodus…
Managing director Fabio Paratici has orchestrated plenty more outgoings from Tottenham than incomings so far, with the likes of Erik Lamela, Joe Hart, Juan Foyth, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga all leaving north London (Transfermarkt).
Spurs are in a sell-to-buy position and have been all transfer window, meaning the Lilywhites must offload surplus-to-requirements assets before making serious money offers for targets.
Sissoko had been one of the players tipped with a sale this summer and journalist Longoni has now brought some news.
The Latest: AC Milan enter Sissoko talks…
As per the reporter on Top Calcio 24 (via Calciomercato.it), European giants Milan have commenced talks with Spurs over taking Sissoko on a loan deal.
“The talks have begun with Tottenham, Milan are aiming for Sissoko’s loan,” he explained.
Indeed, the Frenchman has now emerged as a target for Milan as they aim to bolster their own 2021/2022 Serie A hopes.
As reported by reliable sources before, Tottenham would be open to offers for Sissoko this summer, but it is unclear as to what their stance will be on a loan deal with no development on these discussions just yet.
The Verdict: Time to go…
Whether on loan or a permanent deal, it is arguably time for Spurs to try and offload the 31-year-old while they still can – especially given his age and the fact his contract expires in 2023.
The 71-cap international’s departure could free up crucial salary space for Tottenham targets if Paratici looks to bring in more additions before the window’s closure on August 31.
On a reported £80,000-per-week, Spurs will be looking to ideally instigate Sissoko’s exit as soon as possible as they continue a major summer overhaul.
