Fulham recently rejected a menial bid from Manchester United for Moussa Dembele but according to TalkSPORT, Tottenham Hotspur are willing to trigger the attacking midfielder’s 15 million pound buyout clause in order to strengthen their attacking line up.
Spurs have already made Emmanuel Adebayor’s move, a permanent one, from Manchester City and the Andre Villas-Boas revolution continues to move in full swing. With Luka Modric’s departure all but certain, the Portuguese manager is looking to bring in a replacement as soon as possible to ensure that the club can move further in the current campaign without any hiccups.
Dembele has one year left on his contract and it’s believed that the Cottagers are trying all they can to keep the player at the club even though that could mean that he would be available for free next term. The player is considered as one of the foremost talents at Craven Cottage and Martin Jol is looking to build his team’s attacking force around him.
Sir Alex Ferguson will have to look at a radical increase in his offer if he chooses to pursue Dembele. The addition of competition could lead to a bidding war for the player, and Fulham may get to make some serious cash thanks to the interest from their local rivals.
