Inter close in on Sissoko

France Football claim Inter are very close to signing Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko for €35m.

It had already been reported in Italy that Sissoko’s agents were in negotiations over the last few days.

He is seen as an alternative to Joao Mario, as Sporting continue to drag their heels over that €45m transfer.

According to France Football magazine, Inter are stepping up the intensity when it comes to Sissoko.

Also of interest to Juventus and Real Madrid, the Magpies are asking for €40m after his strong performances at Euro 2016.
