Spurs Make Approach For £35m-Rated Star As Pochettino Lines-Up Triple Swoop

The transfer window is now drawing to a close so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham line-up a triple swoop…

Tottenham have made a move for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko as Mauricio Pochettino lines-up a late triple swoop in the transfer market, according to the Telegraph.

The Argentinean coach has been relatively quiet so far this summer having brought in just two major new signings in Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen but it looks like it’s going to be a busy day in north London tomorrow.

The Telegraph claim that having seen their £12m bid for Wilfried Zaha rejected by Crystal Palace, Tottenham are looking at alternative targets and have now made an approach for Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko.

The 27-year-old has been strongly tipped to leave St James’ Park all summer after starring for France at Euro 2016 but interested clubs have been put off by Newcastle’s inflated £35m valuation.

The newspaper suggests that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy isn’t willing to pay more than £20m for Sissoko and hopes that Newcastle will be forced to lower their asking price during the closing stages of the window as the player is desperate to move back to the Premier League.

We’ll have to wait and see whether that tactic works but Sissoko would be a very useful addition for the north Londoners as with Ryan Mason expected to leave on deadline day and Nabil Bentaleb already sold, Pochettino needs reinforcements in the middle of the park.

Sissoko is more than capable of playing in a central midfield position while he’s also comfortable playing out on the wing if needed meaning the versatile midfielder would give Pochettino plenty of options if he seals a move to White Hart Lane.

The move for Sissoko could be part of a triple swoop from Tottenham as the Telegraph claim that they are on the verge of completing deals for Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez and Marseille winger and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

Now that Marseille’s takeover is complete, it should pave the way for N’Koudou to wrap-up his protracted move to North London with Clinton N’Jie expected to head in the opposite direction as part of the deal.

The Lopez transfer has been in place for some time and it’s expected to finally be pushed through on deadline day as Pochettino looks set to bring in at least three new signings before the window slams shut at 11pm on Wednesday.
