Sissoko impressed at Euro 2016.

Moussa Sissoko awards himself 10/10 for Euro 2016 performances - Twitter reacts

Published 4 Comments

After suffering relegation from the Premier League with Newcastle United last season, Moussa Sissoko really is desperate to secure a return to England's top flight in the summer transfer window.

The France international wants out at St James' Park and following an impressive Euro 2016 campaign on home soil, a move appears imminent.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are said to be interested yet Newcastle's reported - and ridiculous - asking price of £35 million is said to have put a spanner in the works.

Quite what the future holds for Sissoko remains to be seen, but in the midfielder's eyes, his performances in France perfectly justify a big-money move.

According to Sissoko, he would give himself a "10 out of 10" for his performances at Euro 2016.

He told France Football, per Sky Sports: "My priority is to stay in England even if I'm not against going to search for a new challenge elsewhere.

"I particularly want to play with big players and in top-level matches.

"I would give myself 10 out of 10 [at Euro 2016].


"I don't feel that I'm superior to others but, from the moment where I've given everything, I'm not going to attribute myself another mark. I have nothing to reproach myself for in this competition."

Predictably, Twitter users have reacted to Sissoko's rather bold claim and they certainly haven't held back.

Ouch. Newcastle fans' frustrations are understandable, of course, after Sissoko performed so poorly for the Magpies last term.

As one of their senior and best players, the 26-year-old was meant to lead by example yet he flattered to deceive on a weekly basis, scoring just one goal.

The harsh reality is, though, that Sissoko will likely get his move to the Premier League given the sheer amount of money now at clubs' disposal in England's top-flight.

A £35 million player he might not be, but Sissoko is far too good for the Championship and a £20 million return is likely to be on the cards.
