Hamburg have tabled a bid for wantaway Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko, according to reports in his native France.

Sissoko revealed last week that it would be his ‘dream’ to join Arsenal this summer but the Gunners are not understood to be interested in the French international having already snapped up Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka.

Chelsea and Liverpool are also possible destinations for the 26-year-old as he vies to find top-flight football next season.

But, according to L’Equipe, Hamburg have offered Newcastle £9.5million for Sissoko and the Championship club are apparently seriously considering selling to the Bundesliga club.

Sissoko is one of the players Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is keen on offloading this summer as he prepares his squad for life in the Championship.

The Frenchman joined Newcastle for a shade under £2m from Toulouse three years ago and has made over 100 appearances for the Tyneside club.
