Tottenham the latest Premier League club to make contact with Barcelona star

Tottenham the latest Premier League club to make contact with Barcelona star

Tottenham need reinforcements

Antonio Conte is set to be backed in the coming transfer windows following the Italian’s arrival last month.

Despite the clear desire to improve the squad, they cannot spend money ad finitum, having posted losses for the second consecutive year and with a stadium debt of 706 million pounds.

As a result, they will have to get creative in the market.

Could they do this by snapping up out-of-contract players?

Ousmane Dembele on the radar

Ousmane Dembele – who has also been linked with Manchester United recently – is seemingly a man in demand. Still only 24 years old, he is a phenomenal talent, but has been consistently injured since his move to Barcelona in 2017, and approaching the end of his contract, due to expire in the summer of 2022.

Now, Tottenham have joined the race for his signature according to Spanish press, following in the footsteps of Manchester United.

As per Mundo Deportivo:

“The last club that has approached Dembélé with a lot of money ahead and promising to be a key piece in his future project is Tottenham .”  

With Tottenham struggling for goals this season, could Dembele prove an answer?
