Pochettino on Mousa Dembele to China

Tottenham Hotspur may be looking to trim the fat around their squad this January, as the transfer window is well and truly open for the winter.

The likes of Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen, Michel Vorm, Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou are all possible outgoings for Spurs.

A number of these players are into the final six months of their current contracts, meaning Tottenham must either sell up now, or risk losing them for nothing.

The big Belgian Mousa Dembele falls into this category, with recent rumours stating that there may be interest from China (Express).

A move to China would surely been big money for the midfield powerhouse, and may even allow Tottenham to make something near a profit on the player, even after all these years of service.

Pochettino was asked in his press conference today whether a bid has been made, and whether Spurs will listen to them.

Poch said (Football London): “I don’t know. Maybe you know better than me or have better news than me. I’ve heard nothing yet. I know like you there are a lot of rumours. In the moment the club communicate with me about something then we’ll communicate with you if something happens. But at the moment I don’t know anything.

“But like all the players we spoke about in previous press conferences, that business is a different part. The player, the club, the situation, that is so clear. It depends on what the different parts want to do. If something arrives we are going to listen and then it’s what we want to do or the player wants to do, it’s about to negotiate, talk, like always it happens in that business.”
