Liverpool have entered the race to acquire the signature of Newcastle Midfielder Moussa Sissoko after sealing the deal for Sadio Mane’s move to the Anfield according to the reports from the Express.
According to the reports from the L’Equipe, the Reds are now the favorites for signing the player despite the fact that the player has reportedly set his heart on a move to the Arsenal this summer. Sissoko did confirm prior to the Euros that he had been contacted by Liverpool representatives for a potential transfer move.
The player is rated at £20m by Newcastle and while the amount is too high for a player who is in a relegated team the Reds have proven with Mane’s transfer that they do not have any problem overpaying for a player. Although the question remains whether Sissoko is what the Reds need next season, with his record of 12 goals and 19 assists in133 appearances for Newcastle.
