Tottenham will listen to offers for Mousa Dembele this summer as the midfielder seeks an exit from the London club, according to multiple reports.
Dembele’s current contract expires at the end of next season, and talks over a new deal had been postponed until after the World Cup by the player himself.
However, the Mirror now claims Spurs would be willing to listen to offers for Dembele this summer with no indication he wants to recommit to the club.
Tottenham will apparently demand a big fee for the 30-year-old, and China is said to be a more likely destination than Italy despite rumoured interest from Juventus.
According to the Independent, Dembele is unsure he can meet the demands of being a Spurs midfielder for another season.
What’s more, this summer will be the last time Tottenham are able to receive a decent fee for the Belgian.
Dembele’s performances over the last couple of years have made him a fan favourite, but a number of niggling injury problems have often meant he has taken a long time to find his rhythm season by season.
The Mirror believes Spurs have already identified two potential replacements – Atalanta’s Bryan Cristante and Barcelona’s Andre Gomes.
