The Toon midfielder is reportedly on the Reds wish list

According to reports in the press over the past 24 hours, Liverpool will make an approach to Newcastle for the club’s France international Moussa Sissoko.

The 25 year old has been one of only a handful of positives for Newcastle in recent seasons and a move to a more successful, illustrious club is all but inevitable, with the former Toulouse star impressing in his three seasons in the Premier League.

Sissoko had his best season to date last year, scoring five times from the Newcastle midfield and the Frenchman’s strong, aggressive, combative style would be an ideal addition to a Reds midfield that lacked those key attributes unless Lucas Leiva was playing last season.

French newspaper, L’Equipe, are now reporting (via the Express) that Liverpool are ‘closing in’ on a move for the midfielder, having earmarked him as the club’s top midfield target, with (unsurprisingly) Arsenal and Manchester United also believed to be interested.

Having shown interest in a host of other midfielders – without success – since the season ended, Liverpool would be sticking with the club’s approach this summer of (primarily) bringing in players with Premier League experience.

If the Sissoko rumours prove true, then there’s no doubting that the Newcastle player would add some real steal and hardness to the Liverpool side that’s been missing at times since Rodgers took over but is he of sufficient quality to improve on the current crop of Reds midfielders? Let us know your thoughts below.

    • porciestreet says:

      Don’t really want to lose him but we have to move on if things are to change at The Toon.

    • Porciestreet says:

      Like I said Davinho, He has to be strongly managed as he doen’t always turn up. Better than Balotelli though.

  • D'ONE says:

    liverpool need more three players to sign in this summer, 1 centre back, 1 left back and 1 more striker which is benteke then liverpool can make the top four and also claim the EPL trophy.

  • Param says:

    Sissoko not that sharp

  • Toonman says:

    Why would he go to liverpool if he could get a move to one of the big 4 and play against the big boys in europe

  • liverpool says:

    get him now!

  • Kasitor Mukasa says:

    He is one of the players that lpool has been lacking since masherano left the club and with his strength and physical ability that none of the lpool players has it would be great seeing lpool compete for trophies with one the best midfield in the epl! Hope rogers signs him as hes solid enough and can make runs up front and gets back easily

  • Morpethmag says:

    I would gladly drive him down for them . Goes missing in games , runs down blind alleys with no end product , rates himself far higher than he is, always talking to the French press about a move . Get rid and get someone in who is hungry to play for the toon.
