Tottenham Hotspur have brought an end to a quite a long transfer saga by finally agreeing a fee for Fulham’s highly rated young striker Moussa Dembele, as per reports.

The 19-year-old plays as a forward for the Cottagers and has scored as many as nine goals this season, in a total of 26 appearances. The Frenchman is tall, possesses a strong frame and has got a good amount of pace up his sleeve too.

Mauricio Pochetinno’s side have agreed a £5m move for the striker, who is having a medical at White Hart Lane. After completing the move, Dembele will sent back on loan to Fulham and will come back to Spurs when this season draws to a close.
