According to a report from Turkish publication Fotomac, Fenerbahce are keen on landing out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko. 

Sissoko was an unused substitute in Nuno Espirito Santo’s first competitive game in charge against Manchester City and he has subsequently missed out on the matchday squads against Pacos De Ferriera and Wolves.

The Frenchman was reportedly in talks with an overseas club regarding a transfer earlier this month but a move has not materialised so far.

Some sources revealed last week that the 32-year-old has known for quite a while that he is not in Nuno’s plans but his options are limited as he is not keen on a move to the Middle East. 

If Fotomac’s latest update is to be believed, Sissoko could now be on his way to Fenerbahce. The report claims the Turkish giants have identified the Tottenham midfielder as the man to replace Ozan Tufan, who completed a loan move to Watford last week. 

The report adds that Sissoko would be open to joining Fenerbahce if they can agree on a fee with Spurs.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs will likely accept a modest fee since they will want to get Sissoko’s salary off their wage bill. The question is whether Fenerbahce would be able to agree on personal terms with the midfielder. One would imagine that the Frenchman would agree to a wage cut if he is offered a long term contract.
