Although Moussa Sissoko has five-and-a-half years left on his contract at Newcastle United, his agent has stated openly that he is willing to listen to all offers.
Sissoko arrived at St James' Park in January 2013 from Toulouse but already seems to be looking for a way out and there could be some willing clubs ready to snap him up.
It has been suggested that the talented midfielder is hoping that a good World Cup with France will put him in the shop window and Ligue 1 giants Monaco have been rumoured to be interested in him.
Roma are said to be especially interested because their French coach Rudi Garcia has seen Sissoko play against his Lille side for Toulouse and been impressed.
Newcastle may well try and prevent Sissoko leaving but that could be difficult if the player sets his heart on a change of scene.
It has also been suggested that Sissoko may have a clause in his contract that isn't public knowledge that would allow him to buy himself out of his obligation to Newcastle this summer.
The Tyneside club reportedly paid £6m for Sissoko and would be looking to make a decent profit if they were to sell him.
Roma may well have some money to spend if they end up selling off prized asset central defender Mehdi Benatia, who is valued at around £25m.
