Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Christian Eriksen continue to be preferred to Dembele in central roles and with reports of Spurs looking at other midfielders it’s likely he could be sold. The player himself admitted he’ll be looking for talks with boss Mauricio Pochettino when he returns from his holidays. He’s been linked with a shock move to Chelsea this summer.
