Liverpool & Spurs in £10m Belgian battle - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have reportedly joined Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Belgian international Moussa Dembele.

The 24-year-old has endured a far from spectacular spell at Fulham after moving to Craven Cottage in the summer of 2010, with injury affecting his progress under Mark Hughes before the manager's exit at the end of the season.

Goals have also been hard to come by under manager Martin Jol, but that didn't stop Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp being linked with a move for the former AZ Alkmaar striker last week.

The Spurs boss has lined-up Dembele as a possible replacement for Rafael Van der Vaart, according to The Sun, with the Dutch international claimed to be on AC Milan's January transfer radar.

A £10 million price-tag was thought to be well in the budget of the White Hart Lane outfit, but Spurs now face fresh competition from an old foe in the shape of the Reds.

According to ClubCall, Kenny Dalglish has highlighted the player as someone who can help enhance the Liverpool squad as the Merseysiders look for a return to the Barclays Premier League.

With 18 months left on his current deal, the Liverpool boss will be hoping to get a cut-price deal on the forward, who could provide depth in a particularly weak area for the club.

Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez were both drafted in at Anfield in January for a total fee in excess of £55 million, but Liverpool lack a third striker with proven ability, and Dembele's English league and international experience make him a possible candidate.
