Tottenham flop is on Real Madrid, Barca and AC Milan's radar

Tottenham flop Moussa Sissoko is on the transfer list of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and AC Milan as reported by Don Balon.

Sissako’s career is disappointing so far, despite that he could be in line to land a sensational move to one of the top clubs in Europe.

The French attacking midfielder was signed by Tottenham back to the Premier League after Newcastle's relegation in a deadline day move beating the likes of Everton and Arsenal for his signature.

However, the Frenchman has failed to replicate the form he displayed for Newcastle and Euro 2016 tournament in France and failing to make the mark at White Hart Lane.

Sissoko has been given enough time to showcase himself with 32 appearances in all competitions 23 of them in the Premier League with just 4 assists and no goals for the club in the aforementioned appearances is largely underwhelming for an attacking player.

There have already been talks of Mauricio Pochettino looking to replace Moussa Sissoko, with a few summer targets lined up.

Sissoko himself has been regularly linked with an exit from the club, with AC Milan one of the clubs showing an interest in him.

AC Milan is in for a heavy summer in terms of player turnover, with a host of incomings and outgoings expected at San Siro.

The midfield could be reinforced heavily and Moussa Sissoko is one of the many targets the Rossoneri have within their sights.

However, as per Don Balon, Real Madrid and Barcelona have both come into the frame as far as Moussa Sissoko is concerned.

Zinedine Zidane was left mesmerised by the 27-year-old’s Euro 2016 display and had attempted to bring the player over to the Bernabeu last summer, only for the player to sign for Tottenham.

The player’s agent has offered his client to Barcelona in an attempt to get Zidane to renew his interest in the player.

Real Madrid could do with a physically strong midfielder in their squad, with their current options consisting of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Mateo Kovacic – all of whom lack physicality.

It would be interesting to see how the transfer pans out. But, Moussa Sissoko, after a largely disappointing campaign, could very well be on his way to either of Barcelona or Real Madrid – a proposition players often dream of.
