Spurs set to swoop for 21-year-old as replacement for key star – Sky Sports

Tottenham are rumoured to be in search of a central midfield replacement for Mousa Dembele and the club appears to be considering targets in France.

Sky Sports are reporting that Yves Bissouma is the man whom Tottenham are chasing even though nothing seems to be concrete on the transfer just yet.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a north London switch for the past year and with the future of Dembele in doubt, this could be the idle time for a move from Spurs.

Dembele has still not made a decision over renewing his contract at Tottenham, prompting more rumours that he has played his final season for the club.

Bissouma, who is also being pursued by Premier League rivals Everton, is far from the finished product.

The idea of finding a replacement for Dembele, who is now growing old, is a necessary one, but perhaps a more experienced player is what is needed.
