According to our colleagues at L’Equipe, both Liverpool and AS Monaco have contacted Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
Football News understands that Liverpool had aligned him as a possible fallback target should talks with Southampton for Adam Lallana have failed.
AS Monaco remain interested in the player, who would give them a different sort of central midfield presence.
After his good defensive midfield work at the World Cup, the player’s value is indeed rising, and more European sides are expected to make approaches in the coming days.
