Sky Sports reports that Tottenham have drawn up a list of potential successors to Mousa Dembele.

The report adds that the Belgian is close to joining Beijing Guoan and one player that has been watched by Spurs is Denis Zakaria.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has been tracked by Tottenham’s chief scout Steve Hitchen, as per the report, ever since he moved to Germany.

The 22-year-old Swiss international plays in a similar role to Dembele’s and the report claims Mauricio Pochettino has asked for regular updates on the former Young Boys midfielder.

Dembele has had his injury problems at Tottenham and has not played for us since November when he picked up an ankle injury.

Zakaria could be a decent signing for us given his age but Tottenham have other targets too. The report adds that Florian Grillitsch is also a target while the club have watched Tanguy Ndombele, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Donny van de Beek, Morgan Sanson and Sander Berge.

It will be interesting to see if we make a move for the midfielder during the winter window. Dembele seems close to a move to China, and the money coming in from his sale should be reinvested into the team.

Spurs were the only side not to sign a player in the summer, but even without fresh faces, we have done a great job this season.

A quality signing or two in the winter window should guarantee us giving Liverpool and Manchester City a race for the Premier League crown, and hopefully, Daniel Levy provides some funds to Pochettino.
