Should Tottenham be selling Mousa Dembele?

3

SkySports reported this week that Tottenham have accepted an offer of £9m for their midfield man Mousa Dembele.

The Belgian maestro has only a matter of months left on his current contract, with no signs of a new deal on the table.

He would currently be available on a free come the summer, so Spurs may be looking to cash in on him while they still can.

The interested club, Chinese Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan are yet to agree terms with the 31-year-old, so a deal is far from done yet (as reported by Inside Futbol).

So, should Spurs be selling Mousa Dembele?

At the moment, with Mousa’s contract running so low, I would say Spurs have no option but to sell.

The midfielder has been so riddled with injuries over the past year that he may not even be available for the majority of the run in to the end of the season anyway.

Getting almost £10m for an injured player instead of giving him away for free in the summer seems like a good deal.

However, I would argue that Spurs should be pushing to get Dembele to sign a one year or even two year extension.

Yes, he has injury problems, but there is still so much talent in those legs yet, and he could prove to be a valuable squad player, if not a consistent starter.

What do you think?

  1. I admit to being a truly firm admirer of MD. Nine million could mean very little if we wi one of the 4 competitions we are involved in. Forget our other midfielders. There is only one Mousa Dembele. MP will put his name 2nd on the team sheet after Harry Kane s when fit. Imagine Dembele and Sissoko against Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal.

  2. We should only sell him if really wants to go. Forget the money and if we lose him for nothing well for 15 million 7 years ago I would say we have already cashed in. If he is willing to stay and yes the risk is his fitness the value of him even playin a part role for the rest of the year with us having so many games coming up it would be a larger payback to progress than the 10 million or whatever. Its up to him . I dont blame him at his age if he wanted to cash in. I would like him however to stay another year and or at least until the end of this year. Lets offer him a large Insurance incentive in case he gets seriously hurt, It would be expensive but hopefully never utilized. Please stay Moose. Please
