Chelsea are being linked today with a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele.

According to the Daily Star on Sunday, Jose Mourinho is prepared to offer £12million for Dembele in a surprise move as he looks to replace Jon Obi Mikel who is tipped to leave the Premier League champions..

The Belgian international has failed to hold down a regular first-team place under Mauricio Pochettino, who has preferred to play with Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb in the holding role.  Personally, I’m still to be convinced that Mason has what it takes to be a regular starter for us.

The fact that the 27-year-old made only ten Premier League starts last season led to him recently admit he had become frustrated at the lack of opportunities at White Hart Lane.

“I’ve played so few minutes, it is a big disappointment to me,” Dembele told Belgian outlet Sporza.

“At one point I showed what I’ve got and I thought I took my chance, but as quickly again I fell out of the team.

Do you think Dembele should have a future at White Hart Lane?  Leave your comments below.

  1. Like many of you, I really do rate Dembele and think it would be crazy to let him go. I guess it is trying to find out where to play him and get the best out of him. Technically I think he is quality and Id like to see him and Bentaleb given a decent run together as the holding two.

    You just know if he does sign for Chelski he will be stand out and play every game as they win the league again.

    Understand that he wants to play though !
