Mousa Dembele could be set for a £10 million January move to the Chinese Super League, according to the Daily Mail.

The Belgian has entered the final 12 months of his contract and there are no signs he is set to commit to a new deal.

He was expected to leave over the summer and was subsequently linked with potential moves to China and Italy, with Inter Milan being mooted as his most likely desination.

But a transfer failed to materialise and Dembele has started Tottenham’s last five games in all competitions, including Saturday’s 2-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Regardless of his importance to the team, the Mail believes the midfielder could still leave for £10 million in the January transfer window, with Chinese club Beijing Sinobo Guoan willing to pay him £200,000 a week.

That will surely be tempting for Dembele, who apparently earns nowhere near that amount of money at Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping the club can keep hold of him until the end of the season, but Daniel Levy isn’t likely to be keen on the idea of losing the 31-year-old for nothing.
