Tottenham Hotspur’s only piece of transfer business this season was the sale of Mousa Dembele to China, however, they may want to prevent a London rival club from selling in a similar fashion.

Guangzhou Evergrande are said to be interested in bringing Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic to China in a summer transfer, although they are not the only club chasing the 24-year-old (TeamTalk).

Spurs reportedly had a late January bid turned down for the Serbian powerhouse, and may revisit for his signature in the summer themselves (TeamTalk).

Mitrovic is believed to be looking at a potential £12m a year if he moves to China, wages that Tottenham would likely be unable to match.

Fulham bought the striker from Newcastle for £25m after an initial successful loan spell, but Mitrovic is now said to be valued at double this, £50m.

Should Spurs make another attempt to sign the forward in the summer after Fulham are more than likely relegated to the Championship?
