The Telegraph have claimed that Paris Saint-Germain have tabled one final offer to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli on loan this summer, with the French champions got until Monday to complete a deal.
Alli, 24, has dropped down the pecking order at Tottenham, playing in just two of the club’s six games in all competitions. He was hooked at half-time against Everton, and then subbed before the hour mark against KF Shkendija.
With Alli failing to make the matchday squad in the other four outings, PSG have become interested. However, interested parties in Alli have failed to meet Daniel Levy’s asking price for a permanent fee – or to match the necessary requirements for a loan.
Now, the latest report claims PSG have made a ‘final push’ to sign the former MK Dons star – who cost Spurs just £5million (BBC) in January 2015. PSG want him on loan, but the requirements are unclear, with PSG struggling to match them.
It is believed Alli is to feature against Maccabi Heifa on Thursday night, but only from the bench.
TBR’s view – Alli should be kept at Tottenham
He needs to show Mourinho that he can still have an impact at Spurs. With Gio Lo Celso being preferred to the England ace, while Tanguy Ndombele’s form is rapidly improving, Alli needs to show he can change his ways in training and improve.
The best way to do that, though, is to keep him at Tottenham. Ushering him out on loan to PSG would see Alli struggle to start, like he does at Spurs, and eventually his confidence will be knocked further. Remain at Spurs, impress Jose, regain spot. Simple.
