Toulouse's Moussa Sissoko in talks with Liverpool & Newcastle United

The highly rated 21-year-old may leave the French club this summer but the club's president has demanded a £13.3m fee for the midfielder

Toulouse's Moussa Sissoko is in negotiations with Liverpool and Newcastle United over a potential transfer, while Inter and Lyon are also frontrunners for the midfielder's signature, have been told.

The 21-year-old is set for a high-profile move away from Le Tefece after a string of influential performances in Ligue 1 last season.

Sissoko's agent insists the France international has several offers tabled, with the offer from fellow French side Lyon being the strongest.

“The link with Lyon is serious, but it is not the only one,” said his agent, Bacary Sanogo. “There are also negotiations with Liverpool, Newcastle and Inter. Things should seriously move next week.”

However, opposition may come in the form of Toulouse president Olivier Sadran, who will reportedly not accept a bid of anything less than €15 million [£13.3m] for his prized asset.

Since Sissoko has two years left on his contract, Sanogo has refused to rule out the possibility of his client remaining with Toulouse if a transfer deal cannot be struck this summer.

“His priority is a club with a major sporting project. But it will not pose a problem to Moussa [to remain with Toulouse].”
