Tottenham have won the race to sign Fulham striker Moussa Dembele, Football Insider sources understand.
The 19-year-old has been given permission by the Londoners to undergo a Spurs medical on Saturday after the two clubs agreed a deal.
Discussions have taken place between the London clubs in the last 48 hours about a deal in which Dembele could move to White Hart Lane in the January window.
A source close to the situation has told Football Insider that Dembele has chosen Tottenham despite strong interest in him this month from Manchester United, Monaco and Juventus.

The fee is expected to be around the £5million mark for a player who is out of contract at the end of the season.
All parties are confident that terms can be finalised before the transfer window shuts on Monday night.
Spurs’ move for Dembele means they are unlikely to pursue Saido Berahino in the final 48 hours of the window.
