Italian champions Juventus are hoping to force a cut-price deal for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko before the transfer window shuts, according to The Sun.

The French international has expressed his desire to leave Newcastle United publicly this summer as the club got relegated from Premier League. The 27-year old has been impressive with France national team where they managed to reach the finals of Euro 2016 before losing to Portugal in extra time.

The midfielder has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid but the likes of Everton, Crystal Palace beside Inter Milan have all expressed their interest in signing the talented midfielder after his string of stellar performances for France in Euro 2016.

Juventus are keen to land the player as they view him as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba who left for Manchester Untied earlier this summer. However, Juve are only willing to pay £15m as they are not ready to meet Newcastle’s £35m valuation.

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. However with the player’s future up in the air, Newcastle are keen to offload him this summer but are still looking for a club that could meet their asking price.

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.
