“This worries me”, “Ridiculous if we sell him” – Some Tottenham fans unsure about midfielder’s move to China

The BBC reports that Mousa Dembele is close to an £11m move to Chinese club Beijing Guoan.

The 31-year-old picked up an ankle injury a couple of months ago against Wolverhampton Wanderers and did not play for Tottenham since.

The report claims that there could be more players leaving Spurs in the coming weeks as Daniel Levy trims Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Dembele was one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, but his fitness was always a worry for Tottenham.

The Belgian joined Spurs from Fulham in 2012 and his best moment for his country came during the World Cup in the summer.

Dembele helped the side finish third in the competition, and there is no doubt his quality will be missed in the Spurs team.

The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer, and this deal makes a lot of sense since we would be making a sizeable amount from the Belgian.

Spurs have also seen the rise of Harry Winks in recent seasons, and this campaign we have Oliver Skipp to count on.

The youngster picked up some quality minutes in the past week or so, and it will be interesting to see if we add some players to the side in January.

Many Spurs fans weren’t quite sure about Dembele leaving given several injuries, and here are their reactions to the deal from Twitter.
