Juventus are considering a summer move for Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele, according to reports in Italy.
Last week the London Evening Standard claimed Juventus were monitoring Dembele’s contract situation – the midfielder’s current deal expires at the end of next season.
And now, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claims Dembele is one of three top midfielders Juventus are keeping an eye on.
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can remains their top target, but the Serie A champions are also considering moves for Dembele, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey and Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot – a former Spurs target.
The report suggests Juventus want to sign at least one of those players, perhaps two if they are unable to lure Can from Anfield.
Dembele, Ramsey and Rabiot will all be out of contract in the summer of 2019, but there is a chance they will recommit to their current clubs in the meantime.
Tottenham are beleived to be willing to offer Dembele a new deal, although there has been some debate over the length of the contract.
The 30-year-old apparently wants to extend his current deal until the end of the 2021/22 season, but Spurs are reluctant to tie him down for that long because of his age.
Whether than will provoke Dembele to consider his future this summer remains to be seen.
