Tottenham Hotspur has made a decision on the future of Dele Alli who has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain
The 2020-2021 season of the Premier League has commenced, and Tottenham Hotspur seems to be serious competitors to finish in the top four this season after a successful summer transfer market. After a trophy drought which has been going on for years, Jose Mourinho would be looking to bring changes for the better to the team. The Portuguese coach has a reputation of winning titles as he has done so with all the teams he has managed in his career, and he will be looking to continue the trend with Spurs.
With the Lilywhites, the 57-year-old has a good team to work with, as it features a few world-class quality players. But in the two matches that Tottenham has played this season, Jose has chosen to not start one of those quality players, the man in question being English international Dele Alli. The midfielder has apparently fallen down the pecking order, no longer holding the integral role that he had for the past few seasons with the London side and even being left out of the matchday squad altogether, not featuring on the bench either for the past two games.
As a result, there has been news of the 24-year-old leaving for endeavors elsewhere in Europe with teams like Paris Saint-Germain holding a strong interest to sign the England international.
The English midfielder would be a great addition to the phenomenal attacking arsenal that PSG possesses, with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Mauro Icardi forming their attacking trio. Being a player with great flair and a good eye for a pass, his inclusion in the squad would only further increase the threat that the Parisiens pose for defenders across Europe.
However, according to reports Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy, will not be willing to let go of Alli at a cheap price and values the player at around 100 million euros. A price tag that high would be practically unaffordable for the Parisiens, especially due to the financial problems that are posed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to this, perhaps the only viable move away from the English side would be a season-long loan and that too to an overseas club as Levy is reluctant to sell the player to a domestic rival.
