Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want Everton’s Ross Barkley to replace Mousa Dembele in the long run.

Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to a recent report about Mousa Dembele.

According to The Times, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has identified Everton midfielder Ross Barkley as a long-term replacement for Dembele.

It has been claimed that the Argentine boss fears that the 30-year-old Belgium international midfielder Dembele will struggle to play at the highest level beyond his early thirties as he has been playing regular first-team football since he was 19 years of age.

The former Fulham man is a very dynamic midfielder who has progressed and developed well under Pochettino over the past three or so years.

As reported by The Mirror, Tottenham signed the Belgian from Fulham in the summer of 2012 for a transfer fee of £15 million.

The former AZ star is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League when he is in form, but it seems that Spurs are already planning for life after him as they are (reportedly) interested in signing Barkley from Everton this summer.

Barkley operates as an attacking midfielder, but according to The Times, Pochettino wants to sign the England international and convert him into a central midfielder.

Tottenham fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the report about Dembele.
