Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have flocked to a post from Spurs-focused Twitter account @thespursweb which shared Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano’s claim that Spurs attacking midfielder Dele Alli ‘is now pushing to leave’ the Lilywhites.
This news comes after it’s been reported that former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to sign Alli at his new club, Paris Saint-Germain, while the 24-year-old Englishman has not been playing a key role for Jose Mourinho’s side this term, with the £34.2m-rated man having played just 74 minutes of Premier League football so far this term, prior to Spurs’ clash with Fulham on Wednesday.
So, how have these Tottenham Hotspur fans been reacting to this update on Alli?
Romano’s claim, which was made on his Here We Go podcast, suggests Alli is now trying to force a move from the north London club, and this caught the attention of a lot of Tottenham fans, many of whom shared disappointment and anger in response to this post.
“I am crying”
“Ugh. This one is going to hurt.”
“Really hope not, to be fair he was spot on in attitude & performance versus Marine also seems well liked by the rest of the squad #COYS #TOTFUL”
“I will riot”
“We will regret this. Especially with Lo Celso injured all the time.”
“No no no”
Would you be upset if Alli were sold?
“This will hurt, desperately want Dele to hit his past glories but he isn’t getting any chances too, and he can’t seem to take his chance when he’s in the side.”
Hopefully a loan”
All in all, it certainly seems from these Spurs fans’ tweets that plenty of the north London club’s supporters don’t want Alli to leave.
