Moussa Sissoko of Tottenham

If Tottenham Hotspur fans are granted one wish in the transfer window, what would that be? Signing Gareth Bale back from Real Madrid? Signing a back-up for Harry Kane?

I won’t be surprised if many of them say that their biggest wish was to see Moussa Sissoko leave the club in this transfer window. But, it looks like those fans will have to wait a little longer to get their wish fulfilled. Sissoko is staying at the club this summer, as claimed by the midfielder during an Instagram live video (h/t Football London).

The French midfielder arrived for a then club-record deal of £30million on the deadline day last summer from Newcastle United. However, he has failed to assert himself and has become enemy number one for the fans.

All through the summer, he was linked with an exit as reports of interest from Turkey intensified. Trabzonspor eyed a loan move for the player and although Spurs favoured an outright sale, it was thought that the midfielder would make a move away.

Even a surprise move to Italian Champions Juventus was mentioned but it now looks like his immediate future is with Tottenham.

Should We Give Him Another Chance?

To be fair to Sissoko, the weight of being the club record buy weighed heavy on his shoulders. There was pressure on him to perform at the same level as he did for France in the Euros, which triggered our interest in the first place.

Now with the arrival of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax for £42million, Sissoko is no longer the club’s record signing. This should ease some pressure and eyeballs on him, although the midfielder, who is on £95,000-a-week wages, would be under constant fan vigilance.

Does he deserve another chance? Settling down at a club is never easy and we have seen many instances in the past where top players struggled in their first season. There is never a doubt about his ability and he just needs a string of good performances to get his mojo back.

There is merit in the argument that he doesn’t deserve another chance but I feel that he deserves to be given a fair deal without too much glare. With lesser scrutiny, he could probably rediscover his touch. Let’s hope so!
