Stoke and Hamburg chase Sissoko

Stoke City and Hamburg have emerged as contenders to sign Momo Sissoko from Juventus this summer.

The Mali international's future in Turin is in doubt and numerous sides have been associated with his services.

After apparently rejecting an offer from Real Sociedad, Sissoko is now pondering offers from Stoke and Hamburg.

The Premiership club are apparently ready to offer €8m to the Old Lady for the former Liverpool enforcer.

German side Hamburg, meanwhile, are understood to have tabled a €6m bid.

Sissoko, 26, joined Juve in January 2008 for a fee of €11m. He's played in 71 League games for the club since his arrival.
