Tottenham’s £30 million valuation of Mousa Dembele is putting off the Italian sides interested in signing the midfielder, according to the London Evening Standard.
Dembele has just a year left on his current contract and isn’t expected to sign a new deal with Spurs.
The Belgian has put a decision on his future on hold until after the World Cup, but he is expected to leave Tottenham this summer.
The Standard claims Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan and Inter Milan have all shown an interest in Dembele, who currently earns around £80,000 a week at Spurs.
However, the Londoners have slapped a £30 million price tag on the 30-year-old – a hefty fee for an ageing player entering the final year of his contract.
Tottenham may have to lower their asking price if they want to avoid losing Dembele for free in the summer of 2019.
Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be pursuing another central midfielder regardless of Dembele’s future, although reported target Bryan Cristante is set to sign for AS Roma.
