The 20-year-old joined the European champions from Valencia during the summer and has made an immediate impression at Anfield.
Sissoko has made seven appearances for The Reds and has started both the club's games in The Premiership.
Upon his signing from Valencia, the Mali international was compared to French powerhouse Vieira by his manager Rafa Benitez.
The Liverpool boss has tipped Sissoko to become a better player than the Juventus ace once he matures.
Surpassing Vieira's achievements is a goal for Sissoko and the youngster hopes he can enjoy as illustrious a career as the ex-Arsenal captain.
"Patrick has achieved almost everything there is to do in football and won lots of things," said Sissoko.
"But if I keep working hard maybe I can get to that level or become even better and one day people will talk about Sissoko rather than Vieira."
