Wolves should hijack Moussa Sissoko’s potential Fenerbahçe move

Moussa Sissoko’s £30m move to Tottenham in the summer of 2016 hardly went to plan for either party involved and now it seems as though the Frenchman will leave Spurs after just two years.

What’s the story?

Turkish newspaper Sabah have reported that Sissoko is a target for Fenerbahçe after they missed out to West Ham in the race to sign Jack Wilshere on a free transfer.

Valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, Sissoko has appeared in 58 Premier League games for Spurs during his two seasons at the club, but has failed to convince the fans or Mauricio Pochettino that he is capable of holding down a starting spot.

One club that should look to hijack Fenerbahçe’s potential deal is newly promoted Wolves. Nuno Espirito Santo has made seven signings already this summer as he looks to add to his squad for their return to the Premier League and Sissoko would bring much needed Premier League experience.

A perfect fit?

If he is able to find the form he showed at Newcastle and for the French national side at Euro 2016 then Sissoko could be a formidable attribute for Wolves.

In his best position on the right of a midfield, the 28-year-old’s pace and power allows him to drive his team forward and start attacks.

Football Whispers‘ algorithm has named Sissoko as the second most likely player to join Wolves in this transfer window and with new signing Diogo Jota on the opposite wing, Wolves could create a dangerous attacking side.

Spurs will likely be willing to take a hit on the £30m they spent on Sissoko and it could end up being a perfect deal for the West Midlands side.
