Tottenham transfer news: Poch willing to listen to offers for £80,000-a-week ace - reports
By Harry Sykes
Tottenham are willing to cash in on £30million flop signing Moussa Sissoko this summer, according to reports.
The Mirror claim the Premier League high flyers are ready to listen to the offers for the France attacking midfielder just a year after his arrival from Newcastle.
It is said that Sissoko has failed to win the favour of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who is prepared to grant the 27-year-old a summer exit.
It is unlikely that Spurs would be able to sell the Frenchman for £30million given his poor form this season but his departure would free up space on the wage bill.
The Evening Standard report that Sissoko signed a five-year contract worth around £80,000-a-week when he moved from St James’ Park on deadline day last August.

Sissoko has started just six of Tottenham’s 28 Premier League matches this season, and only 10 in all competitions.
In 1,029 minutes of action for the Londoners, the Frenchman is yet to score a single goal and has laid on just four assists.
Sixteen of Sissoko’s 26 appearances have come as a substitute as he has found himself behind the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min in the pecking order for attacking midfield places.
In the latest Tottenham transfer news, the club are clear favourites to sign a prolific Madrid striker.
