Everton Submit Loan Bid for Spurs Flop Moussa Sissoko Amid Ligue 1 Interest in the Midfielder
Everton have reportedly submitted a loan bid for Tottenham flop Moussa Sissoko, after failing to sign the winger on deadline day last summer.
Spurs signed Sissoko for an enormous £30m last year but the midfielder has so far failed to impress at White Hart Lane - proving inconsistent at best, and seemingly incapable of finding his way into the starting line-up any time soon.
According to the International Business Times, the Toffees have a lodged a loan bid for Sissoko, having expressed an interest in the former Newcastle man last summer, but Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to offload the 27-year-old on a permanent basis.
French newspaper L'Equipe claim that Ronaldo Koeman isn't the only one showing interest in Sissoko though, with French clubs Marseille and Lyon also keeping an eye on the France international.
If Tottenham were able to sell, it is unlikely that Sissoko would command the same fee as a year ago, but Spurs would manage to make some of it back as well as save on his wages.
Pochettino is yet to bring in any arrivals this summer, despite recently receiving £50m for Kyle Walker from Manchester City. The Argentine boss reportedly feels that he can rely on the youth within the club rather than have to splash out on transfers.
With that said, Spurs are still believed to be interested in wantaway Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, but are happy to wait until later on in the window before making a move.
Perhaps a deal can be made between the two clubs that might also include Sissoko...
