Aston Villa: Fans react to comments on Dele Alli
Aston Villa have been tipped as a possible destination for Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli this summer by pundit Dean Windass.
And a number of Villa fans have been sharing their thoughts on a potential move on social media.
Alli struggled for game time in north London last season, starting just seven Premier League games under both Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason during the 2020/21 campaign.
Could you see Aston Villa signing Dele Alli?
His future at Spurs remains uncertain following Nuno Espirito Santo’s appointment in the capital, and Windass feels Villa should be looking at the 25-year-old as a potential summer addition.
Windass, talking to Football Fancast, relayed by Birmingham Live, tipped Villa to move for Alli, with or without Jack Grealish.
“I think that would suit Dele Alli, he would be a big player for Villa. I know he’s a different type of player to Jack, but with him being young and English.
“Dele wants to play, players want to play, they’re not happy when they’re not playing. Would be a good fit for Villa even if they keep Jack, to strengthen the team, he would be unbelievable.
“They would probably want £50m-£60m for Dele Alli, but that’s the type of player Dean Smith would want to bring in if Jack left.”
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared the story on social media on Thursday, asking fans if they would like Alli at Villa Park.
This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with many for a deal and one describing the Englishman as ‘quality’.
“Yes, good mates with Jack. And Dean can get him back playing for England again.”
“I think he’d be a great addition to the squad. He’ll give us some experience, and depth. Oh, he also has some quality on the pitch too! “
“Please let this happen, Dele Tammy Jack McGinn Buendia and Ollie Watkins will smash it for us”
“Yes yes yes yes yes”
“Get it done Smith will get the best out of him and the players around him will make him great again we will be a force to reckon with UTV”
“100% class player with a point to prove.”
