Dembele more likely at West Ham than Chelsea

dembelDanny Murphy has told Talksport that he feels Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele is more likely to move to West Ham than Chelsea.

The Sun reported yesterday that West Ham and Chelsea are interested in the Belgian midfielder suggesting Slaven Bilic is an admirer and believes Dembele would strengthen his side.

But Murphy says West Ham have the edge over Chelsea.

“I’m not sure he’s going to go from Tottenham’s bench to Chelsea’s first team – I think it’s more likely that West Ham are going to take him from Spurs,” he told Talksport.

Dembele moved to Spurs  from Fulham for £15m in August 2012.

  1. Just what we need a defensive midfielder ?
    We can’t spend £5 million on Song but we can spend £14 million on this man ?
    We have 3 defensive Midfielders already for 2 spots and still have Nolan and Noble,
    Spend the money on Austin then that’s the forwards sorted

  2. Keep reading all the posts about players we are trying to buy,but can’t understand the reports that none of our squad are for sale,
    I can understand giving Magia and Zarate another chance and at the moment until we buy anew winger why Downing is not for sale
    But honestly Nolan,O!Brien and Jarvis are not for sale ?
    If that’s the height of our ambition we are going to keep them we lucky we are p playing part timers,
    Plus what happened to we will listen to any reasonable offers ?

    • I’d say much as the hippo would say he left us in a much better state than when he waddled up to UP the truth is apart from the players we want to keep the rest are worth feck all and there are no offers to be listened to.

      • Nolan,Jarvis & maybe JOB will be unloaded at some point.But until the market traders bring in others we wont get rid with the europa games coming up.We aint going to sell them when they will part of the mix for these upcoming games will we.

      • Unless the hippo gets a championship job pronto I can’t see KN or JO’B getting any offers higher than league 1. Who knows the clean slate for everyone migh…..no sorry I just can’t finish it lol

        • Lol,a team will take JOB.Maybe a promoted team or Championship side.Where Nolan goes is anyones guess.Someone looking for a traffic cone i suppose 😉

        • New Michelin man maybe lol I think our only real hope with him is a player/coach type offer

          • Wouldnt surprise me if Lennon took him back to Bolton!!He likes an oldie,Heskey,Gudjonsen!!Nolan ex-player as well!!

  3. Be more interested in their RB Yedlin than Dembele that’s if we’d even do business with the spiteful Levy

  4. Why have we suddenly gone from signing top exciting players to possibly signing everybody else’s cr**

  5. If the Spuds don’t want him then neither do we, our target should be to challenge the Spuds not help them out by taking their cast-offs

  6. I see Sullivan jnr is at it again just tweeted hopefully 8 figure signing in next five days,wish they’d stick to we are delighted to announce….

    • From what I’ve read he’s supposed to be their ITK but I’ve not seen any exclusives,they like hearing from Sean too unless he leaves a cryptic message and fecks off lol

      • Lol,yeah he is some random secret squirrel.Load of bs from what i have seen of it.Just stuff that has been reported in the press or media sources.But i guess he has fun reeling them in,lol 😀

  10. Anyone could bull****e they are inside source and take other people’s guess work rewrite it and get 50% correct and look quite good,
