What the papers say
Mousa Dembele doesn’t appear to see Tottenham in his long-term future, according to the Sun. It reports that the Belgium midfielder is eyeing a move to Chinese Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan but he is happy to see out his time at Spurs, with the 31-year-old’s contract expiring in the summer.
Fulham are keeping AC Milan defender Mateo Musacchio on their radar, the Mirror says. Despite spending £100million in the summer, boss Slavisa Jokanovic is still looking to strengthen his side’s defence, with Musacchio said to be top of the list for a January move.
