Dele Alli appears to be edging closer to the Tottenham Hotspur exit, with The Telegraph reporting that Paris Saint-Germain have opened talks to sign the 24-year-old.
Dele’s future has become a key talking point with Jose Mourinho omitting him from his last two squads.
The Telegraph notes that Dele has been left disappointed by missing out on making the lineups. And it now appears that he could soon be on the move.
The report claims PSG have begun talks with Spurs regarding a potential exit. The Telegraph does not suggest whether the midfielder could leave permanently or on loan, but the Ligue 1 champions are hopeful of reaching an agreement.
TBR View: Move may prove beneficial for Dele and Spurs
Having been left out of the last two squads, Dele may well be keen to consider a move elsewhere. He has struggled to rediscover the form that he showed when he initially moved to North London.
It is still a gamble for Tottenham to let him go. He scored eight league goals last season – only Harry Kane and Son Heung-min got more.
And Spurs could do with the largest squad possible to cope with their upcoming schedule.
However, Spotrac shows that Dele earns £100,000-a-week. So his departure will free up space on the wage bill heading into the final days of the window.
And if he leaves permanently, then Mourinho may receive a significant boost to his transfer budget.
