PSG are stepping up their pursuit of Dele Alli and reckon that the Tottenham midfielder wants to move to the French capital, according to the Telegraph.
The 24-year-old still has four years remaining on his Spurs contract, but has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho in recent weeks and was left out of the squad for the victory over Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the Europe League and then Sunday’s 5-2 win over Southampton.
Alli started the opening day defeat to Everton, but was hooked off at half-time and since being axed against Plovdiv, there have been serious doubts over his future.
The ex-MK Dons star has also been overlooked by England in previous squads and will need regular game-time ahead of next summer’s European Championship if he wants to force his way back into Gareth Southgate’s plans.
The signing of Gareth Bale has seen Alli pushed even further down the pecking order, making a Tottenham exit even likelier.
Last week, the Telegraph reported that he could be involved in a swap deal to bring the Welshman back to Spurs, although that move never materialised. And now they believe that a loan deal which would see the midfielder spend the season at the Parc des Princes, could be on the cards before 5 October’s deadline.
The report also suggests that Tottenham and PSG have a good relationship after the recent transfers of both Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura.
