Hannover chasing Sissoko

Hannover have confirmed their interest in signing former Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko.

Sissoko is a free agent after finishing his short-term deal at Levante at the end of the Primera Liga season.

The 29-year-old made 10 appearances for Levante after joining the club on a free transfer in January.

Hannover general manager Dirk Dufner has revealed they are weighing up a move to bring Mali international Sissoko to the club for next season.

"It's a fact, we are looking into the case of Mohamed Sissoko," Duffner told Bild. "Sissoko is a player of big quality, the clubs he has played for are a proof of that!

"Otherwise he would not have played for Valencia, Juventus or Liverpool.

"The circumstance he actually is a Bosman player is just making our interest more intense!"
