Tottenham midfielder Moussa Dembele, 30, is heading for Milan, according to Football.London.

Both AC Milan and Inter Milan are keen to take the Belgium international to Serie A, with Spurs ready to listen to offers.

Dembele has struggled with injuries over the past season and a half which has prompted the north London club to look across the channel for solutions.

Mauricio Pochettino is a long-time admirer of Geoffrey Kondogbia, 24, but the French international is on a season-long loan with Valencia, who have the option to make the deal permanent.

While Dembele was on the sidelines, Eric Dier, 23 and Harry Winks, 21, both emerged as a partnership for club and country, leaving the Belgian struggling to force his way back into the starting line-up since returning to full fitness.

With injuries a constant theme of the last two seasons, the Lilywhites are looking to the future and will listen to offers for their once-influential midfielder.

The list of replacements is being whittled down as well. 18-year-old Mateo Guendouzi of Lorient is another name bandied around the Tottenham hierarchy as a potential replacement. The French youngster has been capped by his country at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels.

Ajax’s Frenkie De Jong, 20, and Yves Bissouma, 21, of Lille are two other players who have caught Pochettino’s eye.
