The Times have claimed that Moussa Sissoko could follow Toby Alderweireld to the Middle East this summer. 

Tottenham confirmed earlier this week that they had reached an agreement with Qatari club Al-Duhail for the transfer of Alderweireld. 

The Belgian became the fifth player to exit the club this summer after Paulo Gazzaniga and Danny Rose became free agents in May, Juan Foyth was sold, and Erik Lamela completed a move to Sevilla as a part of the deal to bring Bryan Gil to North London.

Sissoko is also expected to leave as a part of the North London club’s rebuild this summer and reports from Italy claimed earlier this month that the French international was attracting interest from Napoli.

However, The Times have now claimed that the midfielder is likely to join a club in the Middle East rather than one in Europe. The report adds that it is unclear which club Sissoko will end up joining in the region.

 Spurs Web Opinion 

Sissoko, like Alderweireld, earns a sizeable salary at Spurs and it is unlikely that Ligue 1 clubs will be able to afford his wages, particularly considering his age. So, it would make sense for the 31-year-old to have one final payday in the Middle East before returning to France.
