The want-away Newcastle midfielder certainly is not doing himself down as he looks for a move away from St James' Park.

Moussa Sissoko is doing all he can to sell himself to the wider footballing world, and in an interview with France Football magazine (pages 24-31), his latest attempt to flaunt his talents has seen him award himself 10/10 for his performances at Euro 2016, without a hint of modesty.

In fairness to the French midfielder, there can be no questioning his displays for the national team during the tournament held in France, with Sissoko playing above and beyond expectations.

Indeed, many Newcastle United fans have been left scratching their heads, and wondering where this all-conquering midfield powerhouse has come from.

Sissoko is determined to force a move from St James' Park after the club's relegation last term, famously naming Arsenal as one preferred destination, as quoted by Sky Sports last month.

Arsenal are not the only club said to be monitoring Sissoko nonetheless, with France Football claiming Liverpool, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg, Juventus and Napoli are also interested.

Crystal Palace have also been linked with Sissoko, as per the Mirror.

And Sissoko has sought to make sure that every potential suitor is aware of just how good he has been this summer.

"I would give myself 10 out of 10," Sissoko said on his performances at Euro 2016.

"I don't feel that I'm superior to others but, from the moment where I've given everything, I'm not going to attribute myself another mark. I have nothing to reproach myself for in this competition."

Newcastle are keen to compete hold of Sissoko this summer, and they have slapped a price tag of at around £35 million, according to latest reports as detailed in the Mirror.

What is clear however is that the man himself is determined to leave St James' Park, and he is seeking to show himself off in every way he can.
