Arsenal and Liverpool are claimed to be interested in signing Euro 2016 star Moussa Sissoko, but Newcastle are claimed to be demanding £35 Million for his signature.
The Magpies were relegated from the Premier League in recent months, and are now tasked with returning to the English top division, and will be keen to do that at their first attempt, as they did in 2010.
Interest has already come for their main midfielder from last season Georginio Wijnaldum, and reports quickly came that they had slapped a £25 Million asking price on his head.
Now after an impressive international campaign for France, in which he played a key role in helping his side to the final, he is now being targeted strongly for a move back to the top tier, with Liverpool and Arsenal linked, as well as Serie A giants AC Milan.
Newcastle are said to now be asking for £35 Million in order to release their midfield star, although another story quotes Liverpool’s £18 Million offer as the highest received.
The Reds are also believed to be in talks to sign former Gunner Alex Manninger to their squad on a free transfer, after he left German Bundesliga side Augsburg at the end of the previous term.
Arsenal have already signed Granit Xhaka this summer in order to bolster their midfield options, and it is under debate as to whether more midfield additions are needed, following the release of Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini at the end of last season also.
Arsene Wenger has already hinted he would be adding only three new faces to the first-team squad, and with fans calling out for a centre-back and a striker, another midfielder addition may not be what we want as supporters.
Would Sissoko strengthen our midfield? Is his league form a worry? Would his signing end our hopes of a defensive arrival?
