Moussa Sissoko completed a remarkable transformation when he started last season as something of a figure of frustration among the Tottenham Hotspur fanbase.
The Frenchman joined Spurs on transfer deadline day in 2016 when he completed a £30million deal from Newcastle United and penned a five-year contract (BBC).
For the first two seasons in North London, he largely struggled to make an impact and supporters were questioning why they had paid such a big fee to prise him away from Newcastle.
However, last season has seen Sissoko become an integral part of Spurs’ push for the title and pathway to the Champions League final.
Known for his tough tackling and energetic box to box displays, he was spotted earlier this enjoying a night out with players from fierce rivals Arsenal.
Ahead of this weekend’s trip to Manchester City, Sissoko enjoyed a cosy meal with Arsenal players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Matteo Guendouzi at trendy Mayfair restaurant Novikov (The Sun).
While the food may have been exquisite, the whole notion of a Spurs player enjoying a bite to eat with Arsenal players leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
