West Ham United midfielder Jack Wilshere has actually called the former Tottenham player Moussa Dembele as his toughest opponent in the Premier League.
The former Arsenal midfielder exposed that he disliked playing against the Belgian.
Dembele was among the very best midfielders in the league during his time at Spurs and it is not a surprise that competitors had a hard time against him.
The Belgian was remarkable with the ball at his feet. His dribbling capability and press-resistance made it very challenging to get the ball off him and he assisted the Londoners control games much better.
Wilshere has actually dealt with Dembele a variety of times during the North London derbies and he will understand everything about the Belgian’s strengths.
He stated (quotes by means of City): “I always hated playing against Dembele from Tottenham. Obviously it was a derby and he was always up for the game and made it difficult. He was strong, you couldn’t get the ball off him and his dribbling was unreal”.
Dembele is probably Tottenham’s best midfielder considering that Luka Modric in the last years.
The Belgian was offered to Chinese club Guangzhou in 2019 by the former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Since his departure, Spurs have actually struggled to manage games in the midfield and Mourinho is desperate need of somebody who can fill the Belgian’s space.
Tanguy Ndombele was signed to plug that space last summer however the Frenchman has actually had a hard time to find his rhythm due to repeating injury problems.
