Forget Dele Alli: These 2 midfielders would be far more potent for Tottenham if signed in January

Our Tottenham Hotspur fans here inside the Transfer Tavern are wondering what has happened to their midfielder star, Dele Alli, this season.

Last season Alli was unplayable for Spurs, he set the Premier League alight and his stock rose ten-fol. However, this time around, there has been a stark contrast. Largely cutting a frustrated figure out on the pitch, Alli seems to be struggling for form and now for the first time receiving criticism from fans and pundits alike.

Spurs, in general, are inconsistent this season and currently sit seventh in the league, a point behind Burnley. After having two very good seasons our punters believe that the lack of strength and quality in depth Pochettino has failed to bring in is finally catching up with this young and talented squad.

With the January window fast approaching, now could be the perfect time to bring in a freshness to the team and ease the pressure on the England international. Our landlord takes a look at two midfielders that, if they were to be brought to the Wembley stadium could turn Spurs fortunes around…
