Spurs in for Sissoko

Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko probably won’t get his dream move to Real Madrid today but may be heading to White Hart Lane.

Sky Sports News understand that Rafa Benitez has valued the French Euro 2016 star towards the £30m mark but Tottenham have come in with an offer of around £16m on Transfer Deadline Day.

Despite failing to impress last season, Moussa Sissoko has not been part of the Newcastle first team this season after stating his desire to leave the Championship club following an impressive Euro 2016.

Could Tottenham rescue him from St James’ Park?

What does this mean for Isco?

If Tottenham are able to complete the signing of Moussa Sissoko, you have to wonder if they’ll also want to bring in Real Madrid star Isco on a season long-loan.

Spanish newspaper AS last night reported that Isco has been told to leave Real Madrid but is only interested in joining two clubs – Spurs or Malaga.
