10 most expensive signings by Tottenham Hotspur
- From the side of North London that likes to spend, we look at the 10 most expensive signings that Tottenham has ever made.
#9 Mousa Dembélé – €19 million
Mousa Dembele joined Tottenham Hotspur very late in the 2012-13 summer window. Impressed with his performances across the city in Craven Cottage, Spurs activated his release clause by paying Fulham €19 Million.
Dembele joined Tottenham in August 2012 and made an instant impact when he scored in his senior debut against Norwich City. His only other goal that season would be no less dramatic too. He scored a 90th-minute goal against Olympique Lyon to earn his side a place in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League.
But the real qualities of the Belgian midfielder lie in the centre of the midfield. A dominating figure in Tottenham’s midfield, Mousa has thrived in the role of a holding midfielder. In fact, statistically speaking, he was by far the best dribbler in terms of the successful dribble percentage beating the likes of Messi, Neymar etc.
And with a good few years ahead of him as well, it is well worth to watch out for this guy.Published 28 Jul 2016, 09:51 IST
