Mousa Dembele rejects £20m move to Inter Milan

Mousa Dembele rejects £20m move to Inter Milan

Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele who still has one year left on his contract rejected a £20million move to Inter Milan to remain in North London, despite falling down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino.

Dembele, who was part of the Belgium squad at the World Cup in Russia, started 21 matches last season in the Premier League but saw Victor Wanyama picked ahead of him in the latter stages.

The Italians have already signed Radja Nainggolan from Roma this summer and wanted to pair him with Belgian team-mate Dembele next season.

Dembele is still one of the stand-out performers in the Premier League but he is understood to be looking to wind down his career as he struggles with the physical demands of the English season.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have yet to receive a bid from Manchester United for Toby Alderweireld.

United may be forced to turn to either Jerome Boateng or Alderweireld in their pursuit of a new defender this summer after talks with Barcelona's Yerry Mina came to a halt.
