Speaking recently on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano provided an update on the transfer situation of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Dele Alli.
Since arriving at Tottenham from Milton Keynes Dons in what was a £5.97 million deal back in 2015, Alli has gone on to feature 233 times for the club, scoring 64 goals and providing 56 assists along the way.
However, so far this season, the £34.2 million-rated 24-year-old has played just 74 minutes of Premier League football for Jose Mourinho’s side, leading to reports that claim the midfielder will be allowed to leave the club in the January transfer window.
And, the future of Alli was one subject of discussion on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, in which Romano claimed that the England international does still wish to leave north London in the upcoming transfer window.
He said: “I still say pay attention to Dele Alli, because he’s a player [who], [like] Christian Eriksen, [Mauricio] Pochettino always appreciated. And, he’s an opportunity because, [like] Eriksen with Inter, he’s in the same situation with Tottenham.
“So, he wants to leave the club because he’s not playing and he’s not having his best period with Jose Mourinho. In my opinion, Dele Alli is an amazing player and he deserves to play.
“[Paris Saint-Germain] were interested [in the summer] and, obviously, with Daniel Levy, it’s never easy. So, we’re not talking about something close to being completed, or there [being] advanced talks.”
Do you think Alli will leave the club in January?
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Dele Alli’s future…
With Alli having been linked with a move in the summer transfer window to PSG, only for Tottenham to reject the offers of the French side, and, with former Tottenham manager Pochettino now being heavily linked with the vacant manager’s job at the Ligue 1 side, in our opinion, all things point towards a reunion of Alli and Pochettino in the French capital this January.
However, despite all of these links, a recent report by the Evening Standard has suggested that Spurs are now less sure about sale of Alli due to the mounting number of injuries Mourinho is having to deal with in his side, although, this could well be information leaked by Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, in a bid to raise the price of the 24-year-old.
