Tottenham Hotspur are currently without a head coach with the summer transfer window just over a week away from opening.

Football.London claim that the new manager will have a say on all incomings and outgoings  ahead of the new campaign, with everything currently in limbo while they continue their search.

Yesterday, Serge Aurier admitted that he wants to leave the club and has no intention of signing a new contract with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season L’Equipe.

Moussa Sissoko has also revealed in an interview that he is open to leaving North London after what he claims has been a difficult season for him and plans to sit down with the club to discuss his future.

The French international started 15 of Tottenham’s Premier League matches and admits that with him nearing 32 he wants to be playing and enjoying his football (transfermarkt).

“This is my 5th year at the club and I have had some very good moments,” Sissoko told Foot Mercato.

“Now, I am a person who does not close any doors. If a new challenge presents itself, we will see what I do. But today, I do not close any doors concerning my future, because as I said, it was a difficult year for me at the club. I also want to see what the club will decide. Maybe they will say to me: “Moussa, it is time to go elsewhere.” Or maybe they will say to me: “Moussa, we absolutely want you to stay.”

“In any case, I am open to all propositions today because I have experienced quite a difficult year. I want to play football. I am happiest when I am on the pitch. I will soon be 32 so I am closer to the end than the beginning of my career. What I want, is to continue to play, and enjoy myself. So I am not saying that I absolutely want to leave Tottenham. I feel good over there, I have had good moments and I feel good with the fans and my teammates, who I get on well with. We will speak with the club and we will take a decision at that moment.”

Tottenham could face something of a problem with the midfielder contracted to the club until the summer of 2023, earning a reported £80,000-a-week (Sportrac).

As a result of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, it remains to be seen whether another club will meet Sissoko’s wage demands given his age or whether he will see out out his contract in N17.
