£30m Tottenham flop set for axe less than 12 months after arrival

Tottenham are reportedly willing to listen to offers for midfielder Moussa Sissoko as he has failed to impress at White Hart Lane since his summer arrival.

The 27-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions so far this season, the majority of which though have been off the bench as he has struggled to prove himself under Mauricio Pochettino.

Having also come under public criticism from his coach earlier this season, it hasn’t been the ideal move for both parties, and it looks as though Tottenham could be ready to cut their losses already.

According to The Mirror, Spurs are open to listening to offers and will assess the situation this summer with a view of moving the former Newcastle United star on.

With Sissoko also dropped from the France squad by Didier Deschamps, less than a year after playing a starring role for him at Euro 2016, it’s fair to say that the move to White Hart Lane hasn’t been a good one for his club or country and so it seems as though the ideal solution is to move on this summer.

It will be a disappointment for Tottenham given that they spent £30m on the French international, as noted in the report, as Pochettino had hoped he would add a new dynamic and depth to his midfield in order for the club to compete on various fronts.

However, it hasn’t quite gone to plan and along with the Vincent Janssen signing given the Dutchman has struggled too, Spurs have been criticised for their work in last summer’s transfer window.

Nevertheless, after another impressive campaign on the whole, they will be looking to make key changes to the squad ahead of next season to ensure that they can kick on again and it appears as though Sissoko doesn’t fit into those plans.
