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.
