Though their recent Champions League exit brought the mood of our resident Tottenham fans down, it’s fair to say that optimism is still high in North London.
Whilst their neighbours, Arsenal, are struggling, Tottenham have been very impressive in the Premier League as of late, and with a top-four finish still on the agenda – and a stadium move on the horizon – things are looking good for the club.
However, the future is not without concern, it seems, at least that’s the opinion of Bleacher Report journalist Dean Jones.

Of course, Dembele has been in fine form this season, and particularly over the last few weeks. He was simply sensational against Juventus in the first leg between the two sides, and it’s been a similar case in the Premier League too.
As such, the prospect of losing him is very concerning, and so our landlord has been quizzing his regulars on who the Lilywhites should look to bring in were he to depart. Even if a move to La Liga is out of the question, the fact that he is already 30-years-old means that Tottenham may be keen to replace him soon – and so this is an interesting topic of debate regardless.
Fortunately for Spurs, there are a number of top central midfielders currently on display in Europe, and it’s fair to say that these TWO would be perfect replacements for Dembele were he to leave…
