Tottenham fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye Spurs midfielder Dele Alli

Another name has been reportedly added to Newcastle’s shortlist, and it is in the form of Dele Alli – prompting reaction from Tottenham fans.

Dele, 25, is struggling to recreate his best form – the form that saw him become an England regular, under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

There have been glimpses, but even now, he has dropped out of Tottenham’s starting XI. It is as if he has peaked early – or he needs a move.

A report from Spanish newspaper SPORT claims that Newcastle’s new owners are eyeing Tottenham star Dele – with January now approaching.

The Toon are likely to spend big in the next transfer window, with a whole host of players being linked. Kalidou Koulibaly is another, for example.

What are Tottenham fans saying as Newcastle reportedly eye Dele?

It has been a while now since Dele produced his best form on a consistent basis, and the patience among Spurs fans is beginning to subside.

While every Spurs fan would love to see Dele shining in a Spurs shirt, there comes a time where a player needs to be sold – in the best interests of both.

For Dele, that time has come. He needs a fresh start and at an exciting project like Newcastle, the Toon could build their side around him.

Tottenham fans are open to the exit of Dele after hearing of reports that Newcastle want to sign the ex-MK Dons man.
