Tottenham Hotspur: Antonio Conte eyes Dele Alli transformation

Tottenham Hotspur: Antonio Conte eyes Dele Alli transformation -Tottenham Hotspur News

Writing for Eurosport, reporter Dean Jones has shared the latest on Antonio Conte and Dele Alli amid consistent unrest surrounding his future.

The Lowdown: Alli fighting for Spurs career?

The 25-year-old has been on a downward trajectory since Jose Mourinho’s first full season at the club and arguably before, with the attacker’s market value dropping severely in recent seasons.

Alli was given the cold shoulder by Mourinho for a vast majority of last season which even saw him heavily linked with a loan move to Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain last January.

However, chairman Daniel Levy blocked a reunion with former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, and Alli has seemingly been fighting to revive his Tottenham career ever since.

The England international has been criticised for his poor showings over 2021/22 as he given more chances, but his new boss Antonio Conte seems intent on turning around his fortunes.

The Latest: Jones shares Alli update…

Writing for Eurosport, transfer reporter Jones said that Tottenham expect interest in Alli to ramp up ‘in the coming weeks’.

However, the Italian personally believes that he can ‘unlock’ the midfielder and get him back to his best at N17. Meanwhile, Alli is eager to work with Conte in an attempt to rejuvenate his form.

The Verdict: Last chance saloon…

Levy’s days of wanting £45m for the player last January seem all but long gone as things stand, with a report from earlier this year later stating that Tottenham were willing to offload the 25-year-old for around £25m at a discounted price.

It appears that Spurs will have to either cut their ties for a much smaller fee touted than in previous years or hope that Conte can work his magic and somehow ‘unlock’ Alli.

After Pochettino, he’s the third manager to come in and attempt to do so, with both Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo either unable to get the best out of him or simply deciding to drop him altogether.

The 2018 World Cup star’s contract doesn’t expire until 2024, so there is still time for him to resurrect his Spurs career, but the clock is surely ticking.
