Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele could be on his way to the Chinese Super League after an earlier move there collapside a few months ago.
Beijing Sinobo Guoan will make a new attempt to sign the talented Belgium international after failing to bring him to the Chinese Super League earlier this year, according to the Sun.
It is a bit of a bizarre situation, though. The Spurs had refused to allow him to leave when the Chinese side were interested in him the first time around, and now they would be open for a potential exit…although that transfer would happen during January due to the midfielder’s “reluctance to agree a new deal” may force the North Londoners to sell him.
Serie A champions Juventus also wanted Dembele, who does not want to remain in Tottenham past the 2018-19 campaign. And since he will be out of contract next summer, we could expect a healthy dose of teams lining up for his services.
This would also mean he would be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with an overseas club at the turn of the year as long as he doesn’t extend his tenure with the Spurs. But based on how these are between both parties, that looks highly unlikely.
