Gabby Agbonlahor has urged Aston Villa to move for Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli after his asking price was slashed by £20m.
According to Football Insider, Spurs chief Daniel Levy will look to engineer a £25m move away for the 24-year-old, despite valuing him at £45m last summer.
It seems as if a move away in the upcoming transfer window is a real possibility, and talking to Football Insider, cited by Birmingham Live, Agbonlahor urged Villa to make a £25m move, describing him as a ‘perfect’ addition.
The ex-Villa man did have his doubts over whether or not Levy would do business at £25m, though.
“I just don’t see Spurs letting him go for that amount of money, to be honest.
“He’s still young. Daniel Levy [the Spurs chairman] will want more than that.
“If that was the fee, I’d definitely expect Aston Villa to go for him. I think he’d be perfect for Aston Villa in that number 10 role.
“But I don’t see it being that fee. This is Daniel Levy we’re talking about.”

Villa fans react
As to be expected, it didn’t take long for several fans to have their say on a potential move for Alli, with many both for and against a possible swoop. One supporter even described the Englishman as ‘toxic’.
“I’d hope we pay whatever it takes to land him, think it would be more realistic price of £35million to £40million imo, Alli Jack Ollie and McGinn linking up would be great”
“Don’t want him anywhere near my club”
“I’ve said this for ages be great for villa..”
“If you’ve seen the Spurs documentary you will know that Ali can be quite toxic and passionate about it. Which I get kind of but I wouldn’t want someone like that in my dressing room if I was a player”
“100% you dont become a bad player over night get him to villa and show him the love and watch how he will perform”
