Sissoko, who played in England from 2013 to 2022 for the likes of Newcastle, Tottenham, and Watford, and his wife Marylou Sidibe move out of the flat earlier this year when he opted to move back to his native country.
The company plans to pursue him in France, a source told The Sun: ‘There’s no way he can avoid the liability.’
Sissoko moved to Nantes in the summer for a fee of around £1million, ending a nine year stay in England following his original move to Newcastle United back in 2013.

His stay at Watford, however, was short lived after deciding to leave following their relegation from the Premier League after just one season.
He joined the Hornets in the summer of 2021 and went to make 36 Premier League appearances last season, scoring two goals.
Sissoko has featured 11 times in all competitions, including Ligue 1 and Europa League matches since his switch this summer.
