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?
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.
