Dele Alli Tottenham

Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are keen on bringing Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli across Europe, according to a report.

Alli’s Spurs future has become the subject of speculation in recent days, amid the impending arrival of Gareth Bale.

Initial reports suggested Madrid wanted to include Alli in the deal to send Wales winger Bale back to north London. The England international did not earn a place in the squad for Thursday’s Europa League clash in Bulgaria.

However, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho denied a rift between himself and the player. What’s more, Madrid have also denied their interest in the 24-year-old.

According to Todofichajes, though, Alli is still entertaining admiring glances from across the continent.

The report says that PSG and Inter are the clubs “most interested” in the midfielder, with both sides keen to bolster their ranks in the middle of the pitch.

Spurs‘ idea is to offer Alli a “definitive exit”, although they are aware that a permanent deal may not be possible. Clubs across Europe, including PSG and Inter, are cutting back spending due to the coronavirus impact.

As such, the idea of an initial loan deal with a view to a long-term move is “gaining strength” with both clubs.

According to English journalist David Ornstein, however, Spurs are not considering offloading Alli at this time. That stance, though, could change before the October transfer deadline.

Alli has suffered a drop-off in form in recent seasons, after his blistering displays in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 campaigns.



Sergio Reguilon

Spurs’ current focus, though, remains their pursuit of the club’s former star winger Bale.

Indeed, Tottenham will couple that deal with a move to sign Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon. The Guardian is reporting that the pair are to board the same private jet on their way to London.

Reguilon will arrive amid speculation over Danny Rose’s future. Serie A side Genoa are keen to sign the England international.
