5

Mousa Dembele has emerged as a target for AC Milan.
The Belgium International who has picked up several injuries during his time at the club and currently struggling for consistent game time under Mauricio Pochettino.

And According to today’s edition of Il Corriere dello Sport (via Pianetamilan), the Rossoneri have set their sights on the 30-year-old and and are looking to take him to the San Siro in the January transfer window.

The Italian paper also claims that Dembélé does not want to extend his stay at Tottenham beyond his current contract which is set to expire in 2019.

The article goes on to say that AC Milan are looking for some midfield reinforcements but it is proving complicated to sign either of the Udinese duo Jakub Jankto or Seko Fofana who had previously been linked with a move to Milan.

The article adds that Fiorentina’s Milan Badelj is also a transfer target for the Serie A giants however Dembélé’s stock is considerably higher and the article adds that the player is not happy about his position at Tottenham and would like to leave the club to get more game time and AC Milan are ready to offer him an escape route.

So with players starting to return from injury and Mousa not near the player he has been, would you cash in on him now? Let us know your thoughts

  1. Dembele is a wonderful player but sadly he does not shoot enough. The last time he scored from outside the box
    Was against Young Boys Berne a few years ago.
    If only he’d shoot he would cost a great deal more to buy and would not be sold.

    • Fake news: he's scored outside the box since then – Lyon away for one and at least one other since then. A quality player whose strength in the middle and incredible ability to retain the ball under pressure has given Spurs the edge in loads of games in recent seasons. In the last couple of games he's looked fitter and sharper too, after appearing a bit sluggish against City.

  2. Do not trade Dembele! He is still a top man in his position. Powerful, yet with real skills in passing and in controlling the ball. There is a lot of good games left in him. I also wish he would shoot more.

  3. Dembele is injury-prone, lazy, plays well within himself and has never lived up to the form he was showing for Fulham when we signed him in 2012; virtually no goals and very few assists – he holds on to the ball, and glides past opposition players, but contributes no end result – he’s as much a wage thief as Sissoko, and if we can recoup just a little of the thirty-odd million wasted on him (fee plus wages), I for one would be well pleased.
