Paris Saint Germain in talks to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli after England star was dropped from squad to face Southampton.
The 24-year-old had been left out of the match squad for Spurs’ last two matches. PSG remain hopeful that they can land the Englishman before the window closes.
Alli was not part of the Spurs squad that travelled to Bulgaria to face Lokomotiv Plovdiv. He was also dropped by Mourinho for today’s fixture against Southampton.
The midfielder was offered to Real Madrid as part of the deals that saw Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon join the North London side, the former on loan.
It would be fair to assume that these actions indicate at a lack of clarity on his long term future at Spurs. The player has been left unhappy by Jose Mourinho’s decision and remains confused as to his axing.
The report is unclear as to whether PSG are pursuing a loan deal or a permanent one. They are keen to bring in an English player and Alli might just be that man.
Promise gone stagnant!
The midfielder signed for Spurs in 2015. He hit the ground running and won the PFA Young Player of the Year twice in 2016 and 2017. During the two years, he scored 32 goals and assisted 24 more.
He has failed to hit the same heights since then and has in fact struggled to make an impact in the last two seasons. To put things into context, he has scored just 30 goals since.
With Mourinho once again ready to put his faith in Ndombele, it would appear that Alli’s time at Tottenham is numbered.
Italian giants Inter Milan have also expressed their interest in signing Alli on loan. With PSG now looking to make the first move, it remains to be seen if the Nerazzurri will play their card.

The Ligue 1 champions have won just three points from the first three games of the season and could do with fresh blood coming in.
Alli too has seen his development stall in recent. A fresh start in a new league could be just the opportunity he needs to turn his career around.
With the Euros coming up next summer, the 24-year-old will need to play regularly to earn a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. Having to play a peripheral role at Spurs is hardly going to help his case.
