Could it be Turkish delight for Spurs World Cup star?

Turkish side Fenerbahce are eyeing a move for midfielder Mousa Dembele.

The “Yellow Canaries” have already made several additions to their squad this summer and are set to make future changes following the election of Ali Koc as club President and were recently linked with a move for fellow Spur Moussa Sissoko 

However, according to the daily Turkish newspaper Fanatik, Fenerbahce director of football Damien Comolli has identified Dembele as a top transfer target this summer.

Comolli is hoping to use his close connection with Tottenham to edge ahead in the race to sign the Belgium international, having previously worked at White Hart Lane under a similar guise.

Serie A giants Inter are also interested in a move for Dembele this summer, but reports last week in the Italian media claimed that Dembele has himself ruled out a move to the San Siro.

Dembele played a total of 39 games for Tottenham during the 2017/18 season but fitness issues have seen the midfield powerhouse lose his starting berth in the Spurs midfield and he faces a further battle with the likes of Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, the returning Harry Winks and a possible new arrival as Spurs look to add more quality to their squad.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yet again spurs are left behind in the transfer market. Levy stop showing off your dilly dallying is not in the best interest of Tottenham, indeed you are making tottenhams transfer business somewhat of a joke amongst the football world. Tottenham fans deserve much better treatment, so levy pull your finger out. It’s got to the stage that big clubs do not want to negotiate with you.

  2. I don’t think Dembele had the best World Cup compared to some of our other players there. I’d really like to keep him at Spurs for two more seasons though. Even if he plays a bit less and his impact starts to drop-off, he’s a great experienced player to have in the squad.
