Moussa Sissoko (born 16 August 1989 in Le Blanc-Mesnil, Seine-Saint-Denis) is a French football player of Malian descent who currently plays for French club Toulouse in Ligue 1. He plays as a box-to-box midfielder capable of playing in either the holding role or as an attacker. Sissoko is described as a "well-rounded central midfielder" who is "tall, rangy, and strong in the tackle". His playing style and ability have drawn comparisons with the Malian international Mahamadou Diarra and former French international Patrick Vieira.

Sissoko began his football career playing for local youth clubs in the Île-de-France region, such as Espérance Aulnay and Red Star FC. In 2002, he moved down south to join professional club Toulouse. Sissoko spent four years in the club's youth academy and made his professional debut in the 2007 08 season. He also played in the UEFA Champions League for the first time. In the following season, Sissoko earned award nominations for his performances and also helped Toulouse qualify for the newly-created UEFA Europa League.

Sissoko is a French youth international having played at all levels he was eligible for. In August 2009, he was called up to the senior team for the first time and made his senior international debut in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification against the Faroe Islands. He made his first international start four days later in a qualifier against Austria.
