Tottenham transfer news: Luis Suarez and Marco Asensio targetted, update on Dembele, and more, 21st December 2017
And the merry-go-round continues. December is a real festive month for football fans. No, not because of Christmas or New Year’s Eve—it is the Boxing Day games and the January transfer window that comes after.
As there are only around 10 days to go before the transfer window opens again, the rumour mill is spinning and churning out stories that excites fan and entices them to hope for their team to sign some great players, who will help them achieve glory by the end of the season.
Today’s focus is on Tottenham Hotspur—an ambitious club who are currently faltering against the tide of the financially stronger teams. Sitting 6th in the league table, it has become of utmost importance for the club to sign well in the January window.
And here are some of the rumours surrounding the Lilywhites…
#5 Mousa Dembele to Milan
Alright, folks, this is a bit of a stretch, but it comes from a good source. According to the usually reliable Alfredo Pedulla, who posted this on his own website, Milan are apparently keen on bringing the Spurs midfield maestro to the club in order get them out of the rut that they have been going through this season.
Despite strengthening in the summer with some great players like Andre Silva and Leonardo Bonucci, the Milan club are in a quagmire and have already sacked the coach with whom they started the season, Vicenzo Montella.
Gennaro Gattuso was brought in to the club as the manager and he has not been able to inspire the club to put up good performances and have, as a result, targeted Dembele.
However, it is unlikely that Spurs would let go of the player in the middle of the season despite Dembele having an injury-ravaged campaign thus far.
