Spurs star set to end six-year spell with big money move


Mousa Dembele is once again being linked with a big money move away from Tottenham Hotspur.

The Belgian midfielder has one year left to run on his contract at Spurs and is wanted by Chinese outfit Beijing Guoan, who would be prepared to substantially increase his wage.

Turning 31 in July, Dembele has one last large pay day left in his career, and The Guardian are reporting that Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to listen to offers for the player who will not enter talks about a potential new deal with Spurs until after the World Cup.

If you think of Dembele at his best, Juventus away certainly springs to mind where he can absolutely boss a game, but there are doubts over his long-term fitness.

Mauricio Pochettino has already hinted that he will be looking to take the club to the next level, if Levy approves and fans are expecting quite a few changes to the squad over the course of the summer.

Would you sell Dembele? Have your say below


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Difficult question as I believe that DEMBELE is our best and most important player but he is nearing his two light years. The bigger question is who is good enough to fill his boots,certainly nobody at the squad /team today perhaps in time Harry Winks.If we buy somebody we need the grit of Dave Mackay the hard work of a Wanyama but with the skill of a Gascoigne, yea you are right theydo not exist maybe the world cup will enlighten us,or maybe take a risk with loftus cheek from crystal palace along with his playing partner Wilfred Zaha ???? Its 2 players but that’s how good Mousa is !!!!!

  2. We dare not sell him, he is simply indispensable and on his day he is a delight to behold.Ronaldo is past 30 years and he still plays good football so why sell our talisman because he is going to be 31. Wine gets better with age.

    • But Dembele isn’t wine, he’s a footballer who only plays well when he’s in the mood, or when there’s a new contract or potentially lucrative transfer in the offing. People rave about half-a-dozen good performances this season, but what about all those half-hearted performances in the previous five (when he wasn’t injured, of course)? He’s exactly the type of unprofessional and inconsistent player that fits the term ‘spursy’ to a tee, and we need a far more solid replacement if the ten year trophy drought is ever to come to an end.

  3. There is no-one that I can think of who is good enough to replace him, so why get rid of him. He doesn’t play like someone who is almost 31. He can still have a massive part to play next season. In my opinion it just make more sense to keep him.
