It’s been widely reported that Chelsea are interested in buying Mousa Dembele as they look to fill the gap in the squad left by John Obi Mikel.
Spurs fans will be surprised if there’s any truth in this rumour as Dembele has largely flattered to deceive during his three seasons at White Hart Lane. However, although he is a frustrating player he certainly has plenty of good qualities.
For every aspect of Dembele’s game that disappoints – his shooting, lack of a killer pass and tendency to slow down the play with his dribbling all come to mind – there are positives. The Belgian is extremely strong in possession and for an attacking player is useful in defensive situations.
He’s not been the answer at Tottenham but perhaps with players around him that can cover his deficiencies, Dembele could be a useful squad player at Stamford Bridge. Would a £12m move suit all parties?
