Sunderland are reportedly interested in Tottenham midfielder Moussa Dembele.

The Black Cats see the 28-year-old as the perfect signing to add flair, power and creativity to their midfield ranks, but their Premier League rivals have now slapped a costly £15m price tag on their transfer target.

Dembele, who has 61 international caps for Belgium, scored just the one goal in 40 appearances in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs last season.

Tottenham’s high asking price is likely to provoke Sunderland to move onto alternative targets, although fellow Premier League rivals Chelsea and West Ham United have also been linked with Dembele in the past.
