Moussa Sissoko has boosted his stock no end this summer following an underwhelming campaign with Newcastle United last season.
The midfielder has caught the attention of several top clubs after starring for France on home soil at Euro 2016.
Set to ply his trade in the Championship with the relegated Magpies next season, Sissoko has made no secret of his intention to leave St James’ Park in the coming weeks.

However, the France international can expect to face stiff opposition from his employers as he is under contract with the Tyneside outfit until 2019.
But it would be risky for Newcastle to keep hold of Sissoko against his will – especially considering the calibre of clubs pursuing his signature.
Spanish newspaper El Confidiencial reports Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton are among a host of parties monitoring the player’s situation.
The Magpies, believed to be seeking offers of around €41 million for the powerhouse midfielder, may also be forced to stave off interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Hamburg.
It is remarkable to think clubs of such high stature would be keeping an eye on Sissoko during the summer transfer window given his inconsistent performances for Newcastle last season.
EURO 2016 REVIVAL
The 26-year-old managed a single goal and seven assists in 37 Premier League appearances last term as his side failed to beat the drop by two points in 18th position.
Managing to reverse his stuttering club form, Sissoko was a hugely impactful figure for Les Bleus at Euro 2016 and has emerged as one of the most in-demand midfielders in Europe.
