Liverpool are considering a move in signing Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko this summer, according to the Metro.
The 24-year-old joined the Tyneside club from Toulouse in January 2013 and has had an impressive campaign for Alan Pardew's side last season. He featured in 35 league games, scoring three goals and registering six assists.
The Reds have already added Emre Can and Adam Lallana to their midfield. Brendan Rodgers is still looking to strengthen his squad as the Merseyside club will play in two major competitions – Premier League and the Champions League next season.
Sissoko's form for Newcastle has earned him a place in his national side for the World Cup. He was with the France squad, who were knocked out of the competition by Germany in the quarter finals.
Liverpool could face competition from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco for Sissoko's signature. The French outfit have returned to the Champions League after a long absence and are looking to add the midfielder to their team in the summer transfer window.
The Reds and Monaco have been encouraged in their hope of signing Sissoko. The midfielder's agent Federic Guerra has already hinted that the France international could leave his current employers in search of a new club.
"We're only a year-and-a-half into his Newcastle contract, but open to all propositions for Moussa," the Express quoted Guerra as saying.
The Metro claims Newcastle paid around £1.8m to Toulouse in 2013. The Magpies would be hoping for a hefty bid from potential suitors in letting Sissoko leave St James' Park this summer.
A potential switch to Anfield could see Sissoko fight for a place in the starting XI. He has already starred in the Premier League and a move to Liverpool will see him feature in the Champions League next season.
