Tottenham are braced for an approach from Paris Saint-Germain for their prized asset in the January transfer market.
Tottenham are off to a good start to the season under Jose Mourinho and currently sit third in the Premier League table just two points off the leaders Liverpool.
Their star attacking players Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are off to an incredible start as both have linked up well and have formed an incredible attacking unit which many teams in the league have so far failed to stop. When Jose Mourinho was hired as Tottenham boss, big things were expected of him and so far it is safe to say, he has not disappointed the Tottenham supporters.
Kane and Son have made all the positive headlines so far, but there have been plenty of negative ones as well pertaining to a single player in Dele Alli. Big things were expected of the young English player this season after he managed to win his manager’s faith last year, however, since the start of this campaign, things have not gone according to plan for him, as he is constantly on the bench or out of the squad.
Jose Mourinho has been extremely critical of Dele Alli and has constantly thrown jibes of him not working hard enough on the training ground and on the pitch as well. As it was well documented in the Amazon documentary video, he kept on threw jibes at Dele Alli for being lazy, and it looks like those comments have turned into a harsh reality for the Englishman who has found minutes hard to come by this season.
Dele Alli came very close to leaving in the recently concluded summer window as he was linked with a loan move to Real Madrid as well as Paris Saint-Germain but none of those offers transpired into anything concrete and he has ended up staying at Tottenham.
As per Todo Fichajes, it is expected that Paris Saint-Germain will return with an offer for the talented English youngster, putting forth a loan deal with an option to buy. The French champions are interested in strengthening their attacking options in midfield as their current options are either defensive or box-to-box midfielders, and none of them possesses that creative spark which has been missing from their recent performances.
Without any doubt the arrival of Dele Alli will help PSG solve that problem in their squad. The England international has a contract with Spurs until 2024 and as per reports Spurs would want at least 50 million pounds for their star midfield player. However, due to the current economic and financial constraints on clubs, it is unlikely to see PSG spend that much money on a single player and it is widely expected that the deal will be a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Does Dele Alli need to leave Tottenham to revitalise his career?
