Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story that has outlined Belgian midfielder, Mousa Dembele, as a key target for Serie A’s first placed side, Juventus. The story (from CalcioMercato via talkSPORT) comes just days after Juventus knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League with a 2-1 win over the Lilywhites at Wembley.
Tottenham’s impressive displays in Europe will have no doubt raised the stock of a number of their key players. As football clubs all over Europe watched on, Tottenham went toe-toe with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund without tasting defeat. However, Juventus was a step too far for Tottenham as they bowed out of Europe losing 4-3 on aggregate to last season’s finalists in the first knockout round of the competition.
Despite the loss to the Old Lady, it seems Mousa Dembele made a particular impact on Massimiliano Allegri’s side. After being named as the man of the match when the sides drew 2-2 in Turin, Dembele has been touted as a player that Juventus desperately need. The Italians were previously linked with German midfielder, Emre Can, as the player underwent a contract dispute at Liverpool. However, it now seems that Dembele could be the club’s first choice in the summer as they look to bolster their midfield.
