Writing for football.london, journalist and reliable correspondent Alasdair Gold has shared a seismic update on Dele Alli and his future in north London – going on to say that chairman Daniel Levy will hold discussions over an exit in January if his situation fails to change.
Alli, who has been ‘left out in the cold‘ by manager Jose Mourinho this season, seemingly after Tottenham’s opening day defeat to Everton when he was hooked at half time, is now looking potentially more likely to depart after this news.
Spurs face Alli goodbye
The Englishman was left out of Spurs’ 2-0 victory over Royal Antwerp on Thursday night, with supporters chanting his name throughout the 90 minutes and wanting to see a cameo.
However, Mourinho opted not to use the attacker in a latest signal over Alli’s future – and Gold has now provided an update that the Spurs boss faces losing him as an option in the winter window.
Indeed, according to football.london, it is looking more likely that Spurs will have no choice but to hold discussions over his future in a potential January move.
Transfer Tavern take
Described as a ‘monster‘, Alli has also been lauded as the ‘perfect‘ option for Mourinho in his 4-3-3 system – with pundit Danny Mills imploring the Lilywhites gaffer to utilise him in a number 10 role.
The imperious form of both Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso appears to have made it very difficult for the 6 foot 2 ace to work his way back into favour.
As January looms, time will tell whether Spurs do in fact lose this attacking option – whether it be on loan or a permanent deal.
