Spurs now need to sign a new right back following the departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50 million.

However, Sissoko's wages - believed to be in the region of £85,000 per week - are proving a major stumbling block.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Ligue 1 side Marseille are reportedly interest in the midfielder, but are unwilling to match the player's extortionate wage demands, meaning Spurs may have to subside the Frenchman's wages in order for him to leave the club.

Sky Sports News revealed in June Trippier had agreed a new deal that would keep him at the club until 2022.

One thing, however, is for certain, and that is that Kieran Trippier seems to be the nailed on starter, particularly after signing a new five-year deal with the club.

Either way, Tottenham will have to take a financial hit on the most expensive signing Pochettino has made.

"It's a great achievement for myself and I'm just delighted to get it signed", Trippier told the club's website.

"Playing with the players I have here, I have progressed a lot".

The 26-year-old is expected to line up as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice right back next season following the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

The England full-back, who made his worldwide debut in the friendly defeat to France in June, will remain with the London club until the summer of 2022.

"It's been a great experience and a learning experience".
