The Shocking Story-
Reports suggest that Ronald Koeman’s side have now made an offer to add Tottenham Hotspur reject Moussa Sissoko to their squad at Goodison Park in the current transfer window. The 27-year old French international has failed to impress since his move to the White Hart Lane and at present is recovering from an injury, due to which he was left out of the team’s pre-season tour. His failure to make an impact with the north Londoners, since joining them from Newcastle United, would have caught the attention of Everton, who are now looking to grab this opportunity and add him to their squad.
The Dutch manager is in need of more quality stars, like all top managers and will want to sign Sissoko prior to the start of the new campaign.
The main problem in this deal will be the fact that the Toffees want the French midfielder on loan, while Spurs are quite keen on selling him off permanently.
This might create a conflict of interest between the two clubs and it will be up to them, to sort things out and get a deal done.
With the kind of players that Mauricio Pochettino has in his squad at the moment, it will be tough for him to accommodate Sissoko as well, which could mean that his career at the London based club could possibly be over soon.
More On The Player-
With more than 100 appearances for his former club Newcastle United, the player does have the experience to perform at the top level, though he has only made a total of 25 appearances for Tottenham so far. He has not scored a single goal in the previous campaign, neither at the club level nor at the international level for France, though he had a couple of assists to his name.
His passing has been really good though and the pass success percentage for the national time is as high as 88.7%, which means he can really link up well if given sufficient chances to showcase his talent. However, it would all depend on his fitness levels and the way he is utilised in the upcoming campaign.
Deal or no deal?
From the point of view of the Merseyside outfit, it will be surely a positive move to add the attack minded player to their squad, who can add more aggressiveness to the side, that could be a good thing at times. With his creativity and passing ability, the player can help create chances to score some crucial goals. Also, Sissoko tracks back to help his defensive line at times, which is an additional benefit.
Hopefully, Koeman can convince their domestic rivals to let him leave on loan, rather than permanently, as that is what they want. If things work out and a deal is agreed, it could benefit both clubs.
