According to La Repubblica (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy would be open to sanctioning a loan exit for Moussa Sissoko this summer amid Serie A interest, informs ToTheLaneAndBack.
Sissoko signed for Tottenham in the summer of 2016 from Newcastle United for a then club-record transfer. However, the Frenchman endured a tough first year at the club following his switch. Gradually, though, he has grown into a regular for Spurs and a reliable member of the team who impresses with his work-rate and energy.
While he might not exactly be a permanent fixture in the side, with his experience and know-how, Sissoko brings value to the team. However, his time at Tottenham could be coming to an end after he recently admitted in an interview that he may look to move on this summer. (h/t Football.london)
“Now, I am a person who does not close any doors. If a new challenge presents itself, we will see what I do. But today, I do not close any doors concerning my future, because as I said, it was a difficult year for me at the club.”
Sky Sport Italia (h/t Football.london) reported earlier this week that Sissoko had emerged as a transfer target for Serie A giants Napoli ahead of the 2021/22 season.
And, the aforementioned report has now added on that claim, stating that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would be open to letting Sissoko leave on loan in the current transfer window.
Sissoko featured 42 times across all competitions during the 2020/21 season. However, only 25 of those appearances came from the start. So, an exit, in case it does happen, should not come as a surprise.
The midfielder, though, still has two years left on his current contract with Tottenham. So, it will certainly be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to loan him out or cash in completely.
