Italian outlet CalcioMercato have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko is being tracked by Spurs' Champions League group stage rivals Inter Milan ahead of a summer move.

Sissoko, 29, has been indifferent since moving to Spurs for £30million from Newcastle United in the summer of 2016. He struggled in his first two seasons, but Mauricio Pochettino has kept faith with the France international.

Indeed, the former Toulouse man is now in the form of his life. Being moved into the middle of the park by Pochettino, Sissoko has thrived alongside the likes of Eric Dier, Oliver Skipp and Harry Winks this season.

 

Sissoko has featured in all but one of Spurs last 20 Premier League matches, taking his tally to 109 appearances in all competitions for the north Londoners. He has become even more important following the loss of Mousa Dembele.

Inter have taken note of his improved performance and want to lure the Frenchman to the Giuseppe Meazza, having previously been linked with the Spurs number 17.

The report claims that Sissoko is 'tempted' to try something new having never played in Serie A, while the report also states that no contract renewals have been offered to Sissoko - with his £80k-a-week contract (Spotrac) expiring in 2021.

It remains to be seen if Inter will look to lure the midfielder to Italy, though they could be putting a plan in place ahead of the summer window.
