It’s been widely accepted for some time now that Moussa Sissoko will be on his way out of Newcastle, but where he’ll end up has been the mystery.

He’s long been linked and expressed his desire to play for Arsenal, but a pair of other targets have emerged in Liverpool and Juventus, sources close to the club divulged to ESPN FC.

The move could be interesting either way. Though the Frenchman has made clear his desire to stay in the Premier League itself, he would likely step into the largest role amongst the three squads with Juventus. That is under the impression that Paul Pogba would bolt. Should he go to Liverpool, he would have to compete much more for regular playing time with the Reds already well established offensive midfield.

The 26-year-old did nothing but improve his value in Euro 2016, turning in solid performances when called upon during the tournament — most notably against Portugal in the final. He had one goal with seven assists for Tyneside in 37 Premier League matches in 2015-16.
