Tottenham Hotspur have impressed so far this season despite spending absolutely nothing during the summer transfer window.
Mauricio Pochettino worked wonders in the opening three games, but his side couldn’t find a way past Watford today. And, to make matters worse, it appears as if they could lose one of their star players, as according to Sun Sport, Mousa Dembele is set to quit Totteham for a mega-money move to China.
Mousa Dembele is set to quit Spurs for a mega-money switch to China in the January.
Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan hope to land him at the second attempt.
Indeed, they first tried to sign the Belgian midfielder last February during the Chinese transfer window.
Tottenham refused to let the 31-year-old leave, but his reluctance to agree a new deal may force them to sell in January.
Interestingly, the Belgian’s contract runs out next summer, which means he can sign a pre-contract with an overseas club in the new year.
There’s no doubt that Dembele is one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League, but his time in North London appears to be coming to an end, with a move to China being a possibility in January.
The Belgian’s contract situation could play a massive part in a potential move away as the Belgian appears to be hesitant to pen a new deal, meaning that a mega-money offer could help persuade him.
