Newcastle United’s Moussa Sissoko 6/4 to join Borussia Dortmund this summer
Competition: German Bundesliga
Market: Sissoko to join Dortmund
Odds: 6/4 @ William Hill
Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko has made his intentions clear of leaving the club this summer, but his destination is still in the air. The French international saw his stock rise considerably after an outstanding performance in the Euro 2016 final, and now has a number of sides keen on his signature.
The 26-year-old had long been linked with Premier League side Arsenal, but German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are now in the frame as they’re looking to replace the industrious Ilkay Gundogan, who joined Manchester City ahead of the new season.
Sissoko is expert at bringing the ball from deep into attacking areas, and provides a lot of steel to the midfield due to his superior physicality. Dortmund are keen to remain a physically imposing team on their opposition under manager Thomas Tuchel, and Sissoko fits the bill.
He boasts pace and power and has an eye for goal in the midfield, showcasing similarities to the likes of Manchester City’s Yaya Toure at times, but the asking price might be a stumbling block. Newcastle are standing firm at a £30M valuation which Dortmund are unlikely to meet so a potential deal could take the summer to resolve.
