Dembele puts Tottenham on alert

Fulham striker Moussa Dembele played hot and cold yesterday in light of transfer speculation linking him with a £10 million move to Tottenham.

The 24-year-old Belgian, currently away on international duty, told Flemish daily newspaper De Staandard regarding Spurs’ interest, “Yes, I heard that. Obviously it would be a step higher and that has always been my goal.”

However, the former AZ Alkmaar frontman later issued a clarifying statement to the press association, saying, “Yes I was asked about the links with Spurs, and I did respond that I was flattered by interest in me, because it means I am playing well, nothing more. However, I am happy at Fulham and I am under contract here.”

The Mail reports that Tottenham have already had two bids turned down for Dembele, and plan to return with another in the January transfer window.
