After being asked about his future Cissoko said: “I am flattered by reports I am hearing about European teams interested in me.

“Chelsea and Marseille are so massive for me and my hero, Didier Drogba, played for the two of them and I loved these two clubs so we will see.

And finished by acknowledging: “In January or the end of the season, we will see, but when Chelsea or Marseille comes you do not think twice.”
