Depending on which report you read this morning, alleged Tottenham target Moussa Dembele has either issued a come and get me plea to Spurs or pledged his future to current employers Fulham.
Other areas of the press have suggested that it’s a U-turn on the part of a player who is increasingly being connected with a winter transfer across London.
The original quote in the Belgian Press has the player saying in response to the Spurs rumours,
“Yes, I heard that. Obviously it would be a step higher and that has always been my goal.”
That was enough to spark a whole host of new claims and it seems to have sparked Dembele into issuing something of a climb down,
“Yes I was asked about the links with Spurs, and I did respond that I was flattered by interest in me,” he went on to say.
“It means I am playing well, nothing more. However, I am happy at Fulham and I am under contract here.”
That hasn’t stopped the press persisting with the story however and the Daily Mail are insisting that Dembele is the man the club wants. It claims that two bids have already been turned down but Spurs will be back in January, undeterred.
