Mousa Dembele has been one of the star players at Tottenham Hotspur in the last few years. Ever since Mauricio Pochettino took over at the club, the Spurs team saw a whole ring of changes with new players coming in and the young generation of players took charge. However, a few players from the older generation stayed through, Dembele being one of them.

He took over the role of a leader at the club and played as a central midfielder. He became one of the seriously best players not only in the club but also in the league. He has the quality to not only play as a central midfielder but also an attacking midfielder.

He has exceptionally good ball skills, he can dribble when required, he can pass the ball short and long, he can finish from tight angles and besides having all these qualities he can also tackle and mark his man in the midfield.

However, with the player being injury prone and now being north of 30, his Tottenham career might be coming to an end. He has now been on the standing for way too long over a new contract but has nothing has come to light. It is being believed that Spurs might have to lose him to China.

If Dembele does leave him, here are three players who can replace him at the club.

Danny Drinkwater

The Chelsea man has had a slow start to his career at Stamford Bridge. The Blues midfielder has been left out of the squad for way too long and the player is growing frustrated. He was a first-team player at Leicester prior to his move but at Chelsea, he has lost his footing. It seems he might be able to do better at a club where he can get regular game time. Drinkwater is a good box to box player and Spurs might be the place for him to do that.

Aaron Ramsey

What a smooth move it would be for Spurs to steal a player from their arch-rivals. Aaron Ramsey is a decent midfielder who can up the ante when it matters and he always has the taste for the fancy. Spurs might be able to get a good deal with his contract set to expire.

Jack Wilshere

Another Gunners midfielder who is on the verge of ending his contract. Wilshere is as talented as they come and getting him will not only add quality to their squad but they will also be hampering the progress of Arsenal.
