Tottenham could have an £80m player on their hands if Antonio Conte can get Dele Alli going again, says former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer.

Alli has really struggled in the last few seasons, with the current one being no different.

Under former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, he started just six league games, managing the one goal against Wolves at the start of the campaign.

Can Conte revive Alli's career?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This comes after a disappointing 2020/21 season, where he failed to score at all in the English top flight.

Palmer, though, has not given up on the 25-year-old and believes if Conte can revive his career, then Spurs will have an £80m player at their disposal.

“He has got good players,” the ex-Leeds United and Southampton star said to TIF. “If he can get the likes of Dele Alli to start playing and a system that he can play, you’ve got an £80m player in Dele Alli – an England international, top player.”

Alli will get a fresh start under Conte, with the Italian even promising the attacking midfielder that he will give him the chance to start games as long as he shows he deserves to.

Conte also described Alli as a player with “great potential” and who is physically strong so is clearly a fan of the England international.

    If we could get anywhere near that in the transfer window I’d take it. Alli is the laziest player we have on our books now and he won’t get game time unless he changes his ways. We need him doing the off the ball stuff instead of doing his usual silly little skip and walk after losing the ball. We want him being the box to box player we all thought he would become, if he was to become that player, I’m sure he’d win his England place back in a heartbeat. I just can’t see that happening though, so I say, sell.
