Paris Saint-Germain are willing to sell Tottenham Hotspur target Ousmane Dembele in January
According to the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are one of a number of Premier League clubs eyeing up a move for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Ousmane Dembele in January.
The 26-year-old recently moved to Ligue 1 from Barcelona during the summer. He was impressive for the Spanish club when fit, but faced the majority of his time in the recovery room due to persistent injury issues.
To make matters even worse, the French winger has had a less-than-impressive start in Paris, failing to score in his five matches under Luis Enrique.
Due to this, PSG are planning the possibility of letting him go, possibly through a loan deal in January. Other clubs, like Arsenal and West Ham United, are also watching Dembele’s situation.
The French giants already have a surplus of attacking talent following a summer spending spree. They secured the signing of Goncalo Ramos, Kang In Lee, Randal Kolo Muani, Bradley Barcola, and Marco Asensio.
However, out of all these high-profile transfers, Dembele has struggled at PSG. This has led to the fans showing disappointment towards the former Barcelona winger after just five matches for his new club.
He now faces increased competition for playing time, and he needs to step up whenever given a chance.
Dembele‘s ongoing challenge to maintain consistency, a concern dating back to his Barcelona days, coupled with injury risks, could affect his plans at PSG.
Additionally, manager Enrique prioritises performance and has a history of making bold decisions based on a player’s actual on-field contributions, regardless of their stature or reputation.
However, it would be a surprise to see him end up at Tottenham, even if he ever considers leaving the club in January. Also, Spurs will not be able to offer him Champions League football this season.
Although it is a fascinating time to join the Ange Postecoglou side, it’s highly unlikely that the French giants will let their star asset leave without any resistance.
Dembele could be a lethal player on the flanks, but is it actually worth spending millions on an injury-prone player?
