Midfield powerhouse: Moussa Sissoko.

Turkish giants Fenerbahce are plotting a loan raid for Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko, according to The Sun.

The 29-year-old Frenchman featured for Mauricio Pochettino’s side during the opening day Premier League victory at Newcastle, but could struggle to secure regular first-team football throughout the rest of this campaign in a competitive engine room area.

As such, the Super Lig one side want to take Sissoko on a season-long loan arrangement and include a clause in the deal that could see them sign the former Toon ace permanently next summer.

Former Spurs Director of Football, Damien Comolli, is now working with Fenerbahce and is hoping his good connections with the north London club will see them force through a move.

Wanted man: Mariano.

Real Madrid could make a late move for former White and Lyon forward Mariano, who had been set on a transfer window switch to Sevilla.

According to Marca, Los Blancos are keen to exercise their first refusal option on the 25-year-old hitman before this month’s August 31 La Liga deadline as Julen Lopetegui seeks striking reinforcements.

Mariano only left the Bernabeu last summer but Real are at the front of the queue should they wish to re-sign the Dominican Republic ace.

Even if Sevilla press ahead with a €30 million move for Mariano, Madrid have 48 hours to usurp that bid and sign the forward as part of the transfer arrangement made last summer.

Should, however, the Spanish giants decide not to pursue the player and as a result he joins the Andalusia side – then Real are poised to pocket a sell-on clause fee believed to be in the region of €12m.

Adrien Rabiot has featured at the start of the season for PSG.

Paris Saint-Germain are threatening to report Barcelona to FIFA over the La Liga club’s approach for midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The Frenchman, who withdrew from this summer’s World Cup squad that went on to win the trophy after being named only as a standby, has less than 12 months left on his contract with PSG.

Barca are understood to have contacted PSG over a move this summer, with technical director Eric Abidal and general manager Pep Segura having flown to Paris.

However, the Ligue 1 champions are convinced that Barca and Rabiot have already agreed a deal for the player to move to Spain next summer once his contract expires.

As such, PSG are ready to report their rivals to FIFA, a threat that has infuriated Barcelona.

The Spanish club are said to believe that PSG’s reported interest in La Blaugrana midfielder Ivan Rakitic is a retaliatory move to Barca’s Rabiot approach.

Tensions between both clubs have been at a high following Neymar‘s world-record transfer from Barca to PSG last summer.
