Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko 2/1 to join Juventus this summer
Market: Sissoko to join Juventus
Odds: 2/1 @ William Hill
Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been linked with a move away from St James Park this summer, and Italian Serie A side Juventus are named among the favourites to procure his signature with Man Utd-bound midfielder Paul Pogba potentially on his way out of Turin.
Juventus are keen to quickly replace the physicality and box-to-box attributes Pogba brought to the Old Lady midfield in his four years at the club, and Sissoko would go some way to softening the blow given his performances for France in this summer’s European Championships.
Sissoko is perhaps more of a dribble when in possession than a passer like Pogba, but can also score and create chances at free will when in form. He won’t be cheap, however, with Newcastle reportedly wanting £35M for the 26-year-old, but given Pogba could be leaving for over £100M, Sissoko’s asking price won’t break the bank.
A number of Premier League sides have been linked with his signature, with Everton, Liverpool and Arsenal among the favourites with the bookmakers, but Juventus are said to be leading the chase. As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 2/1 for Sissoko to make the surprise switch to Juventus this summer.
