According to Sky Sports, Serie A giants Napoli ‘could start moving’ for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko ‘in the coming days’ – with the Frenchman now a firm target.
The Lowdown: Mass Spurs exodus?
Spurs will need to offload players before they can start to seriously move for signings this summer.
Due to the pandemic, which has severely impacted finances at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it is reliably reported that Spurs are planning to bolster their transfer kitty by means of selling (Alasdair Gold).
The likes of Serge Aurier, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, Dele Alli and even Lucas Moura have been mentioned as possible candidates for the Lilywhites chopping block (football.london).
Sissoko is also a likely sale, with Sky now sharing this latest development.
The Latest: Sissoko attracting interest…
As explained by Sky, Napoli are now seriously eyeing the 31-year-old and could even ‘start moving’ for the player.
The outlet says they could swoop in the ‘coming days’, with club chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis now targeting Sissoko alongside Benfica ace Nuno Tavares and Fortuna Sittard maestro Zian Flemming.
Indeed, Sissoko could also be an ‘important reinforcement’ for Napoli this summer.
The Verdict: Get rid…
Operating under severe financial constraints, Spurs need to take advantage and sell surplus-to-requirements players wherever possible.
Napoli’s fresh interest represents a golden opportunity to offload a player who arguably doesn’t hold that much market value – especially having entered his 30s.
Sissoko has been a good servant for Spurs, making 202 appearances for the club since signing from Newcastle in 2016, but we believe his time is up in north London and this is a move that the club should be happy to facilitate.
