Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are said to be interested in signing Fulham forward Moussa Dembele.

Sky Sports pundit Andy Hinchcliffe has claimed that Fulham youngster Moussa Dembele has the ability to play in the Premier League.

Both Everton and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Dembele in recent times, by Get West London, with the duo said to be impressed by the front-man’s potential.

And Hinchcliffe feels that Dembele would make a good addition for either of the top-flight pair, after watching him on regular occasions this season.

"He's still very young, very raw, Dembele, but he doesn't seem to get too much wrong," Hinchcliffe said.

"I don't see a lot of naivety in his play. With [strike partner] Ross McCormack especially, your brain has to work very quickly because McCormack is such a thoughtful player with the positions he picks up. He plays off Dembele, and to stick to your natural game and pick up what others are doing around you shows a real maturity.

"I think with his pace, his power, his finishing on the floor and in the air, he's playing like a mid-20s player, which is quite extraordinary. There's been talk of interest from Everton and Spurs; he could be a Premier League player and it will be nice to see how he develops over the course of the season."

Dembele has enjoyed a fine breakthrough campaign so far, and he has fully established his place in Fulham’s starting line-up.

The 19-year-old’s pace has caused problems for defences throughout the Championship, and he has netted on a consistent basis.

Dembele already has eight goals to his name in his opening 18 appearances, and Spurs and Everton have apparently been casting their eye over the starlet.

Both Tottenham and Everton have had great success from signing players from the Football League recently, and Hinchcliffe clearly feels that Dembele could be another hit at the very top level.
