Report shares how much Tottenham can sell Dele Alli for in January
According to a report from The Telegraph, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is unlikely to sell Dele Alli in the January transfer window for one reason – his current market value.
Alli, once one of the finest young talents in England, seems to have lost his way. He was pushed out of the side by Jose Mourinho and it almost looked certain last season that he would leave Spurs to reunite with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.
Levy blocked that move and Alli managed to outlast Mourinho. New boss Nuno Espirito Santo has welcomed him back into the side and has handed him starts in every single Premier League game so far this season.
However, Alli hasn’t looked anything like his previous self in those games. The Spurs boss was left with no choice but to bring him off at half-time against Arsenal, and the report now casts doubt over his Tottenham future.
Tottenham cannot command a big fee for Dele Alli in January
If Alli’s performances don’t improve in the next three months, Nuno will have to do what Mourinho did – push him out of the side. That will all but end the Englishman’s Tottenham career, but the report claims that Levy is unlikely to sell him in January.
Alli’s poor form and lack of opportunities over the last 12 months has caused his market value to plummet.
The report reveals that Spurs will struggle to get anything more than £20 million in the current market, which is not even close to what he’s worth when he’s at his best.
Alli was valued at £100m in 2019
Alli’s Tottenham future looked like it was coming to an end this time last year. Mourinho had pushed him out of the side and PSG were heavily linked with a move. However, Levy could not be convinced, probably because of his valuation.
A report from The Daily Mail in September last year revealed that Levy valued Alli at a staggering £100 million the year before (2019).
It’s unclear how much Levy wanted last year, but the one thing that’s clear is that his valuation has dropped drastically now, and with the way things are going, it doesn’t look like it’ll go back up anytime soon.
