Tottenham Hotspur will make a decision this week on whether to let Dele Alli leave Spurs, according to The Mirror.
The future of the 24-year-old at the club remains uncertain, with Jose Mourinho seemingly having run out of patience with him, but Daniel Levy remains a big fan of the player.
Alli has made just six starts for Tottenham this season and, worse still, has twice been replaced at half-time, coming off against Everton in the Premier League and Antwerp in the Europa League.
Although he got 65 minutes under his belt against Marine in the FA Cup third round, he was an unused substitute against Fulham and not even in the squad against Sheffield United.
According to The Mirror, Paris Saint-Germain are pushing to sign Alli on loan, the player himself said to be ready to make the move and link up once again with Mauricio Pochettino.
And although Levy blocked PSG’s moves to sign the England international last summer, the report suggests he may potentially be willing to sanction a loan move this time round, with the Ligue 1 giants expecting a decision this week.
While Alli may have struggled for form at times, the talent and quality is there, as shown by his impressive displays against the likes of Manchester United and Maccabi Haifa.
However, Mourinho certainly looks like he has lost patience with the £100,000-a-week playmaker and it looks as though he’s not going to get many more chances at Spurs as things stand.
Levy might appear to rate Alli highly but if the manager doesn’t, then he’s not going to play, simple as.
And if there’s an opportunity for the player to not only get game time but effectively kickstart his career, it’s a no-brainer really.
