Speculation over Tottenham flop Sissoko’s future

Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in Tottenham flop Moussa Sissoko, it is claimed.

Italian outlet Calciomercato.com say both Serie A clubs would be keen to take Sissoko, 27, on loan for the rest of the season in January if Spurs agree to a loan deal.

Everton, Paris St-Germain and Sevilla are also said to be interested in the France international.

He has failed to impress since a big-money move to north London from Newcastle in the summer.

He was not even included in the matchday squad for Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea, inevitably triggering speculation that a January move could be on the cards.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino pulled no punches when asked about Sissoko’s omission at the manager’s post-match press conference following the Chelsea game.

“Football is not about money,” said Pochettino.

“You need to show on the training ground you are better than another team-mate and you deserve to be involved.

“If you sign a player and you expect something and you do not find what you expect, and if another deserves to be involved, like (Georges-Kevin) Nkoudou or (Vincent) Janssen – why? Because we paid money we need to put the player to play?

“Of course he needs to work hard and show in the future he deserves to be involved in the team.

“I need to take a decision and I believe the players that start on the bench deserve to be involved.”
