Newcastle United will accept £20 million as transfer fee for Moussa Sissoko, according to The Times.

Media reports in England on Monday claimed that Newcastle have placed a price tag of £35m on the France international midfielder.

Sky Sports and The London Evening Standard were among those who claimed that the Magpies want £35m to part company with the 26-year-old in the summer transfer window.

However, according to The Times, Newcastle are willing to listen to offers starting at £20m for Sissoko.

It has been reported that Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are all weighing up bids for the Frenchman.

“He prefers a move to the Emirates Stadium but Arsenal are unwilling at this stage to spark a bidding war with a formal offer,” adds the report in The Times.
