According to Foot Mercato, Chelsea are ready to launch a bid for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko in January.
A source close to the player has confirmed, that the Blues and several others Premier League clubs are keen on signing the 26-year-old midfielder.
It is said, that Newcastle United have put a £17m price-tag on their player, but the Magpies will try to convince Sissoko to stay at St James’ Park offering him a significant increase to his £35,000 per-week wages.
The rumors may be true, because some time ago player gave an interview in which he said:
” I want to play for one of the biggest clubs.”
“I would notably like to play in the Champions League, which I can’t do at Newcastle. One day or another, my time will come.”
Sissoko joined Newcastle from French outfit Toulouse for £1.5m.
