Moussa Sissoko could follow Toby Alderweireld to the Middle East
According to The Times (Subscription Required), midfielder Moussa Sissoko could see his Tottenham Hotspur tenure end this summer. The report mentions that the Frenchman could soon follow Alderweireld to the Middle East after the Belgian defender joined Qatari club Al-Duhail.
On Moussa Sissoko
Sissoko is a graduate of Toulouse’s academy. He made his first-team debut for the French side in 2007. The player spent 6 years in the first team and made 220 appearances.
Newcastle United signed Moussa Sissoko in 2013. He played a memorable part in the club’s battle for survival in the 14/15 campaign and scored the opening goal in a 2-0 home victory on the final day of the season to keep Newcastle up.
Tottenham Hotspur signed Sissoko in 2016. The club broke their transfer record for the player and his first season at N17 was underwhelming. Mauricio Pochettino did not shy away with his criticism. The manager expressed that he was disappointed by the impact made by Sissoko. The midfielder only played 901′ minutes in the Premier League.
However, he looked back to his old self in the following season. Pochettino lauded ‘professional’ Sissoko, adding that he worked hard and pushed himself to get out of bad form.
Tottenham’s Midfield Options
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are not lacking options in the midfield. Even without Sissoko, Spurs have the likes of Dele All, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle.
