Tottenham Hotspur's head of recruitment Paul Mitchell is reportedly a big fan of Fulham striker Moussa Dembele

Fulham Turnstiles

The French youth international has been linked with a long list of clubs.

Fulham striker Moussa Dembele has become one of the most wanted young talents in the Championship this year. His good form this season and the fact his contract expires in the summer has seen him linked with plenty of top Premier League clubs and those abroad.

One such team keen on the player is Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs, who already have a Mousa Dembele, would like to bring the 19-year-old Frenchman to White Hart Lane in the summer and Mauricio Pochettino is known to be a fan of the player.

But perhaps more importantly it is now being reported that Tottenham's head of recruitment and analysis Paul Mitchell is a great admirer of the player by the London Evening Standard.

As much input at Pochettino has in the recruitment of players Mitchell is the man who deals with the logistics of such a deal and the fact he is keen on bringing him in is certainly a positive sign for any Spurs fan getting excited at the notion of another Dembele at White Hart Lane.

The French youth international would still cost Spurs money as part of a compensation package to Fulham if he did indeed make a move to North London.
