According to the latest reports in France, Everton are set for talks with Moussa Sissoko’s agent this week.
The French international has expressed his desire to leave Newcastle United this summer as he publicly admitted his desire as the club got relegated from Premier League.
The midfielder has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid but the likes of Everton, Crystal Palace, and Inter Milan have all expressed their interest in signing the talented midfielder.
Newcastle are expecting a massive €40million to let him go as he is one of the highly rated midfielders available in the market this summer.
The Frenchman is ready to listen to the offers of different clubs before making a decision but Real Madrid remains his desired club, reports suggest.
The Toffees have sent representatives to Paris in an attempt to lure the player ahead of their rivals and are said to have opened talks with the player’s representatives.
The 27-year old can play both in the middle as well as in wide positions and is keen to join a club that offers him Champions League football. Meanwhile, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is in no pressure to sell the midfielder but remains keen to sell him sooner as he could bring in potential replacements before the end of transfer window.
