Report: Newcastle United want over £15m for either Moussa Sissoko or Ayoze Perez

Newcastle United reportedly could be tempted to cash-in on one of their bigger name players in January.

Newcastle United will not sell Ayoze Perez or Moussa Sissoko for anything less than £15 million in January, according to a report in the Chronicle.

Perez and Sissoko have both been the subject of interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs in recent times, the Chronicle has suggested, but Newcastle are keen to keep both.

The Magpies feel that the Spanish striker and French midfielder are a key part of their future plans, and they will only relinquish them if they do receive a big fee.

Yesterday, HITC ran reports that Newcastle may cash-in on one of their bigger name players, to ensure that they have funds to budget for their own spending plans.

Newcastle are hoping to bring in some quality in January, but they realise the need to trim their squad, if they are to make additions.

The lose of either Perez or Sissoko would be a huge risk for Newcastle to take, and it would put a lot of pressure on their replacements to hit the ground running, if they were to go through with it.

The Magpies are currently in 17th place in the Premier League table, and they are just two-points clear of safety, meaning that it will be vital that they bring in quality in January, to make sure they stay clear of the drop zone.
