Published Add your comment

Tottenham are reportedly considering a January bid for Fulham forward Moussa Dembele.

The Belgian has found the net only once in 16 appearances for the Cottagers this season, but has impressed with numerous cultured displays.

According to The Sun, Spurs are keen on the 24-year-old and see him as a potential £10 million replacement for Rafael van der Vaart.

The Dutch playmaker is a reported target for AC Milan although, on Sunday, he confirmed his intention to stay at White Hart Lane.

Meanwhile, Fulham boss Martin Jol believes Dembele will soon be comparable to van der Vaart, after playing a starring role in the loss to Spurs at the weekend.

"Moussa Dembele is a very gifted player," said the former Spurs manager."

"He gave Tottenham lots of problems. In a few months, maybe a year, he will be like Rafa van der Vaart."

Dembele moved to Craven Cottage from AZ Alkmaar in 2010 for a fee reported to be in the region of £5 million.
