What needs to happen for Tottenham Hotspur to let Dele Alli join PSG on loan in the remaining days of the January transfer window
- Tottenham Hotspur will let Dele Alli join PSG on loan for the remainder of the season provided they could find his replacement
- The North London outfit are keeping tabs on former midfielder Christian Eriksen who has struggled for form at his new club Inter Milan
- But the Denmark international’s huge salary has so far prevented Spurs from making a concrete offer for his services
Tottenham Hotspur will let Dele Alli join Paris Saint-Germain on loan provided they could bring in his replacement in the last few days of the January transfer window, per The Guardian.
The report further claims that PSG, who only recently appointed former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, have been in talks with Tottenham for some time to find an avenue that would see Alli join them in the ongoing transfer window.
Spurs have so far resisted the idea of letting Alli leave because they feel they would be left short in case the England international leaves the club in the middle of the season, a genuine concern given that Jose Mourinho’s side are still in four competitions.
While they sit only one point behind Premier League leaders Liverpool with a game in hand, Spurs have qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League, booked an FA Cup fifth-round clash with Everton after defeating Wycombe yesterday and are in the Carabao Cup Final alongside Man City.
What’s happened to Dele Alli?
Multiple questions such as ‘what’s happened to Dele’ and ‘is Dele Alli still at Spurs’ have been voiced by the neutrals puzzled by the omission of the England international from the club’s matchday squads, mainly because it was only last year that he was the club’s lynchpin under Pochettino.
However, anybody who has watched Spurs’ Amazon Documentary “All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur” could explain that it is the midfielder’s attitude or lack of it, which attracted the ire of Mourinho in his first training session with Spurs last December, that has led to Alli’s absence.
Throw into the mix the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele and Steven Bergwijn in recent windows – both players who play in the same position as Alli, and Mourinho has been able to leave Alli out of his matchday squads without attracting the ire of his side’s fans.
