Darren Bent has claimed that Dele Alli should be looking to leave Tottenham permanently, as reports continue to surface about his future.
Alli, who earns £100,000-a-week, has played just 12 first-team games this season after slipping down the pecking order under manager Jose Mourinho.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is having to make do with mainly cup appearances to keep up his fitness.
Well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Paris Saint-Germain are pushing to try sign the English playmaker on loan.
He’s claimed that talks are now at an advanced stage over Alli joining PSG on loan until the end of the season, but it won’t include an option to buy.
Bent feels it’s imperative that Alli completes his move away from North London this month, adding that leaving permanently would be the best move for him.
“I think he needs to go out on loan first and foremost and then try to get out of there permanently,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“Go to PSG if that’s where he’s going, play well under Pochettino and hopefully that can turn into a permanent [move].”
For Alli, it’s just important that he gets back to playing regularly in the second half of the season and working under Mauricio Pochettino on loan at PSG looks perfect.
His future at Spurs looks unclear while Mourinho is in charge, but it shouldn’t be completely dismissed.
He’s scored 64 goals and supplied 57 assists in 234 appearances for Spurs.
