Toulouse angry as Sissoko eyes exit

France international Sissoko, 21, was linked with a number of high-profile clubs last summer but said he was happy to remain at Toulouse.

However, he revealed in March that he was ready to move on, and agent Bacary Sanogo has revealed talks are taking place with a number of clubs around the continent.

"The link with Lyon is serious, but it is not the only one," Sanogo told "There are also negotiations with Liverpool, Newcastle and Inter. Things should seriously move next week."

He added: "His priority is a club with a major sporting project, but it will not pose a problem to Moussa [to remain with Toulouse]."

Toulouse are said to be demanding €15 million for Sissoko.
