Tottenham and United compete for Belgium ace

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are both in the race to sign the Fulham attacking midfielder Moussa Dembele, according to Talksport.

It is thought that Spurs are more likely to capture the signature of Dembele as they will be more willing to trigger a £15 million pound buy-out clause which would see the Belgian international have free reign to move to North London.

Dembele, 25, would be a welcome addition to Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas after the imminent departures of Luka Modric to Real Madrid and Tom Huddlestone to Stoke. Dembele, who himself was rumoured to be of interest to Real Madrid last week, joined Fulham from Dutch outfit AZ Alkmaar for £5 million pounds in 2010.

Dembele has been capped 40 times by a talented Belgian side that includes new Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini and incidentally new Tottenham centre-back Jan Vertonghen.
