Reports have emerged claiming that Newcastle United face a fresh battle to keep hold of Moussa Sissoko.
The Mail on Sunday reported that Sissoko is wanted by Napoli.
Steve McClaren is unlikely to agree to the sale though.
Cheick Tiote is poised to join Shanghai Shenhua and Florian Thauvin also is expected to return to Marseille on loan.
Sissoko has spoken of interest from Arsenal this season.
