Internazionale and AC Milan are both keen on Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele, Sky Sports News understands.

The Belgium international, who turns 31 this year, has entered the last 18 months of his Spurs contract and struggled with injuries this season.

Spurs are unlikely to let him leave in the January window but Sky Sports News reported in December that they have begun scouting for his long-term replacement.

They have been watching the 24-year-old France international Geoffrey Kondogbia, who has been having an excellent season on loan at Valencia from Inter.
