According to reports from The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Fulham over a deal for Manchester United strike target Moussa Dembele.
The highly-rated 19-year-old has bagged nine goals and two assists in 24 Championship appearances this season, for a Fulham side who find themselves just six points and four places above the relegation zone.
With his Craven Cottage contract set to expire at the end of the campaign, a number of top clubs from the Premier League and yonder have taken an interest in the former PSG starlet this season.
Manchester United are known long-term admirers with ‘strong interest‘ according to reports from December, whilst Monaco have discussed a transfer to Ligue 1 and Serie A champions Juventus have also been mooted as potential suitors. Dembele has been allowed to negotiate pre-contract terms with foreign clubs since January 1st.
But according to The Daily Mail, it’s Tottenham Hotspur who have now opened talks with Fulham over a potential January move for Dembele, amid their search for an understudy to first-choice striker Harry Kane.
The Lilywhites have proposed a player-plus-cash swap deal and Cottagers director of football Mike Rigg is weighing up which Spurs fringe player would best suit the West London club.
