Since his big money move from Newcastle United last summer, things haven't gone well for French midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

After impressing at the Euros, Tottenham Hotspur splashed out a mouth-watering £30 million, according to the BBC. However, the midfielder has hardly featured for Spurs this season, making 25 league appearances.

And now, after recent reports from the London Evening Standard claiming Sissoko does not want any potential move away from the club to be blocked this summer, it looks like the Frenchman's time at White Hart Lane could well be up.

So where next for the former Newcastle United man? After finally securing a move to a top four team, many thought Moussa Sissoko would begin to thrive under Mauricio Pochettino, but it seems again that the Frenchman has stagnated.

The report in the London Evening Standard suggested that Marseille may well be keen on the midfielder, but could any Premier League sides offer Moussa Sissoko another chance to prove he is good enough to cut it with the Premier League's best? One team who could find a use for him is Slaven Bilic's West Ham United.

After losing star attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet last January, West Ham United will be looking for players who can add that spark that's been missing at the London Stadium for a lot of this season. The creativity and attacking flair of Payet was a major part of Bilic's success with the Hammers last season.

Could Moussa Sissoko add what's been missing? The Frenchman showed in spells for Newcastle United and for the French national side that he is more than capable of producing top class performances, but needs the team around him to play to his strengths. If able to get him at a cut price, West Ham United might well consider a move for a player who needs to prove himself.
