£30 million bid tabled for Spurs star


Tottenham Hotspur have accepted a £30million bid from an unnamed Chinese club for midfielder Mousa Dembele, according to reports from RMC Sport.

The Belgian midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Italy with Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan and Inter Milan all said to be keen to sign the former Fulham man who is 31 next month.

Dembele is in the final 12 months of his contract at Tottenham and is said to be looking for one large pay day which he would certainly get if he was to play his football in China.  However, the player is said to prefer a move to Serie A.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has previously admitted that he has to be ‘careful’ about the fitness of the powerful midfielder. However, all we need to do is to cast our minds back to his performance away to Juventus in the Champions League to know that on his day he can absolutely boss a game.

It would be a shame to see Mousa leave, but we need to be looking towards the future.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I can’t understand why we are selling one of our stellar players one of a few world class players we have.We will find it very difficult to find a player of that calibre again and I can only see us struggling without him, He is by far my favourite player and to get a player like him would cost £100M or more. I just wish there is something that can be done to persuade him to stay, he’s got at least another good 3 years in him and Grealish is definitely NOT the answer.

    • I can understand why we’re selling him, he’s 30, has just the one year left on his contract and has fitness issues, I just hope Levy signs someone that can not only fill his boots but can show us a significant upgrade in the middle of the park. We need to sign CLASS.

  2. The only reason he’s leaving is because Poch knows what his fitness levels are and they can’t be good. We had the same sort of issue with Ledley, best CB in the league but couldn’t play every game. You have to think of the squad and how it affects them if a player is just instantly allowed in the squad coz he’s fit. Will be missed for sure but at least if he’s heading to China we won’t have to play against him!

  3. Was it his birthday today? I’m sure there was a copy/paste that said something along the lines of “the 30 year old powerhouse”
