Malian Juventus midfielder Mohamed Lamine Sissoko "Momo Sissoko" is the target of several European clubs as Stoke City and Bundesliga side Hamburg try to acquire his services.

The international midfielder, who has played for Juventus since 2008, didn’t meet expectations, featuring in 18 games without scoring. His future with the Old Lady is in doubt.

The 26-year-old player rejected an offer from Spanish side Real Sociedad in recent days. According to Football Italia, Stoke City offered eight million Euros in their bid, while the Germans tabled six million Euros.

Formerly with Auxerre, Valence and Liverpool, Sissoko joined Juventus in January 2008 for 11 million Euros.
