How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

The article claimed that Spurs are “not looking to sell or loan out” the Englishman during the January transfer window and “expect the midfielder to stay and fight for his place in the team.”

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest update.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about this latest transfer news concerning Alli?

“So he’s gone in the summer?” 

@Ygjez

“Why is everyone complaining? Surely this is good news.”

@ShaySpurs

“He should stay we don’t have the numbers” 

@shalaby_bido

“Good He will come Good for us” 

@TedTorndal

“How can the guy fight for his place when he never gets an opportunity!!! If he doesn’t start against Brentford then I feel bad for Ali, we all love him and want the old him back. But how can he get there without opportunity. Let the guy play football” 

@Jordan_Neale

“He should be in the 1st team always. Not right how he’s been treated” 

@JoshJ93

It’s just going round in circles at this point #coys #thfc

Spurs signed Alli back in 2015 from MK Dons for a fee of £5.97 million. Since then, the 24-year-old, who is currently valued at £34.2 million, has made 233 appearances for Tottenham across all competitions in which he has scored 64 goals and provided 56 assists (per Transfermarkt).

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that the majority of these Spurs fans would be happy to see Alli remain at the club this month.

Do you think Alli will become a regular starter for Spurs again this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, with the midfielder having only made 11 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side across all competitions so far this season, he will need to work hard to try and be a regular starter for the team throughout the remainder of the season.
