According to Football.London, Everton are eyeing up the opportunity to loan in Tottenham Hotspur flop Summer 2016 signing Moussa Sissoko.

The attacking midfielder has been a huge disappointment at Spurs ever since his £30 million move from Newcastle United on transfer deadline day last season, and it is widely expected Sissoko will leave the club during the current transfer window, just a year on from his arrival at White Hart Lane.

In a revealing interview with French outlet L’Equipe earlier in the year, Sissoko lambasted his decision to join Spurs, claiming that the season he endured at White Hart Lane was his worst ever and cried out for the Tottenham hierarchy not to price him out of a move away from the club.

However, many reports have suggested that Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy will try to recover the bulk of the £30 million spent on the Frenchman, which has so far deterred interest from other clubs in snapping up the midfielder on a permanent basis.

Recently, it was reported that French outfit Marseille were interested in reuniting Moussa Sissoko with Ligue 1 football, but were hesitant to take a risk with such a hefty transfer fee and were subsequently eyeing up a loan move for the wide-man.

Now, Football.London has also suggested that Everton are looking into the exact same deal, which seems to suggest Spurs may have to settle with a loan move for Sissoko, who’s desperate to get away from our club.

There appears to be little chance of us getting anything in return for Sissoko’s services this Summer, which is certain to frustrate the Tottenham fans and hierarchy alike. What do you think of the situation?
