Potential transfer between Newcastle United and Everton will depend on one man


Moussa Sissoko’s prospective move to Everton will depend on new director of football Steve Walsh, according to reports from the Chronicle.

Sissoko has been widely touted to leave Newcastle United this summer and the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid have all been linked with a move for the French international.

Recently, the Guardian reported that even Everton had joined in the race to sign Sissoko and that the Toffees were ready to splash as much as £35 million in order to secure the services of the 26-year-old.

Now in a development to the story, it has been claimed by the Chronicle that Everton will place a concrete bid for Sissoko only if new Toffees’ director of football, Steve Walsh, gives the prospective transfer the green light.

Walsh, who has been credited with discovering the likes of N’Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez, recently joined Everton from Leicester City and reportedly will now be meeting up with manager Ronald Koeman to discuss the transfer of Sissoko.
