Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko is one of the players most likely to sign for Wolves in the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Football Whispers claims that Sissoko, 28, is the second most-likely player to move to Molineux in the coming months with Crystal Palace’s Bakary Sako being tipped to return to the West Midlands.

Sissoko has struggled to establish himself as a mainstay of the Spurs starting line-up since he was signed by Mauricio Pochettino on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2016.

This season the France international has made 44 appearances in all competitions and scored two goals, however he has only started 13 games in the Premier League.

Football Whispers, which gathers all transfer rumours across the globe and calculates the likelihood of them happening, rates it 2.8 out of 5 that Sissoko will join the Championship winners, with five the highest possible ranking and meaning it is a certainty.

The Daily Star reports that Sissoko earns £95,000-a-week in his deal at Tottenham, which still has another three years remaining on it.

Football Insider verdict

Sissoko has been a real enigma since signing for Tottenham. It was odd that they signed him from Newcastle after they were relegated from the Premier League in 2016. What was more odd is that Mauricio Pochettino spent £30million on him, even though he was never really going to break into the starting line-up with the Spurs midfielder as good as it is. Sissoko won’t be missed if Spurs sell him this summer and he could be a handy player for Wolves. However he just seems to be someone who does a job, and that is it. He won’t set the world alight and there will always be better options for him than a team with Wolves’ spending power.

In other Wolves news, Jorge Mendes is working on a £13.1million deal for this top-flight colossus and the club must seal a summer swoop for him.
