Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele says that he wants to score more goals.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has admitted to that he is not a natural goalscorer like his teammate and England international striker Harry Kane.

Dembele has said that he wants to score more goals, having found the net just once in 40 competitive matches last season.

The Belgium international has scored in his last two appearances for Spurs, and he seems to be determined to find the target more regularly as the season progresses.

However, the 28-year-old has admitted that it is not easy for him as he is not a natural goalscorer like Kane.

“That’s something I’m thinking a lot about,” Dembele told “Everybody’s telling me that I have to think more about that and I try to put that more in my game.

“It’s not like maybe Harry (Kane), who has this in himself, but I’m working a lot and when I’m in more attacking roles I try to think ‘I need to be dangerous in an attacking way, I need to shoot more’ and it’s helping me at the moment.”

Dembele is a versatile player and he is not always deployed in an attacking midfield position.

Scoring goals is always an asset for any midfield player, but it is important that the former Fulham star does not get obsessed with finding the net.

Kane is Tottenham’s first-choice striker, and he should carry the bulk of scoring goals.

The England international is a natural goalscorer and he has come into some good form lately.

Tottenham fans will hope that the 22-year-old continues to bang in the goals and help them finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.
