Tottenham set to miss out on Moussa Sissoko as Manchester City and Bayern Munich lead big spenders eyeing the France star

Tottenham Hotspur look set to be priced out of a move for France starlet Moussa Sissoko.

Spurs refused to go above £12million for the 20-year-old Toulouse midfielder in the summer and now appear to have been overtaken in the race to sign him by bigger clubs.

Free-spending Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Lyon are among the clubs now linked with a move for the player keeping Patrick Vieira out of the France squad.

The maturing Sissoko has spoken of a desire to play in the Barclays Premier League, but insists he is in no rush to leave France and is under contract till 2012.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has stated a desire to bolster his midfield in the January transfer window, but may have to look elsewhere.
