Tuesday morning has brought claims of a 12m euros (approx £9.6m) offer for Moussa Sissoko.
The club in question is reported to be SV Hamburg, with L’Equipe saying that the Bundesliga club are the first to come in with a concrete offer for the Newcastle midfielder.
On the eve of the Euros, Sissoko stated that he was determined to leave Newcastle as they couldn’t fulfil his ambitions as a Championship club.
However, SV Hamburg finished 10th in the Bundesliga last season and aren’t exactly the ideal ‘English club in the Champions League’ that Moussa Sissoko says is his ideal destination.
Whatever substance there is or isn’t in this transfer story, it looks certain that offers will be coming in for the player despite many Newcastle fans feeling that he is a player who flatters to deceive, with suspect character.
L’Equipe claim that an offer closer to 16m euros (approx £12.8m) could tempt Newcastle to sell but with the transfer spending set to go through the roof in England, Newcastle are likely to be looking for substantially more before they would allow Moussa Sissoko to leave.
The 20 Premier League clubs are set to receive around £600m more between then next season via the new TV deal, with a large portion of that set to be added to transfer budgets this summer to try and ensure teams thrive/stay in the Premier League.
