Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Dembele transfer reports

Napoli

Mousa Dembele has been linked with leaving Tottenham Hotspur.

Serie A side Napoli have a reported interest in signing Mousa Dembele for Tottenham Hotspur.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims the central midfielder has already held talks with Napoli over a January move. The report adds that the club are interested in making an offer in the region of £10 million.

Dembele has struggled to make an impact under head coach Mauricio Pochettino, last season averaging under 45 minutes per Premier League appearance.

This is despite his versatility enabling him to play in defensive and attacking roles, but this campaign has not been any better for him, suffering the misfortune to get injured after playing in the opening games.

The midfielder will have one eye on a place in Belgium's Euro 2016 side, and a move away from Tottenham could be his best bet if he wants to win a starting place.

A departure would leave a void if Christian Eriksen were to get injured, with Dembele effective last season in the role, and Spurs would have to hope Alex Pritchard could step up after his ankle surgery. 

Dembele is though one of the more experienced midfielders in Tottenham's young squad, and if they sold the 28-year-old they would have to look for a replacement, despite the talent coming through at the club.

Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to the news of Dembele's possible departure...
