Juventus have entered the race to sign Tottenham midfielder Moussa Dembele as competition for his signature continues to hot up.
The Belgian has just 12 months left on his current Spurs deal, but the club and his representatives are far from reaching an agreement on an extension which has forced the club to consider selling him.
Inter Milan had been leading the race for his signature, but they have so far offered just £8.8 million and they now face new competition from Juventus. Spurs value Dembele at £26 million and they are hoping a bidding war would drive that price up.
Dembele was Tottenham’s midfield linchpin for the start of last season, however, an injury kept him on the sidelines for a while and he struggled to get back into the starting eleven towards the end of last season.
With Eric Dier and Victor Wayama other alternatives to play in central midfield, Mauricio Pochettino is willing to allow Dembele leave for the right price as he looks for funds to add more quality to other areas of his squad.
Dembele is with Belgium at the World Cup and a final decision on his future would be made after the competition.
