Tottenham will consider selling Dele Alli or sending him out on a six-month loan when the January transfer window opens, according to the Telegraph.
Alli has been struggling for game time all season, though he did make his first Premier League appearance for several weeks as a late substitute in Sunday’s draw at Crystal Palace.
It’s likely he was only in the squad at Selhurst Park because Gareth Bale was ill, so his future remains very much in doubt.
And the Telegraph believes Spurs’ stance on the 24-year-old is now clear – he will be allowed to leave in January.
The report says Tottenham want Alli’s ‘full market value’ if they are to sell, but the Londoners will also consider offers to take him on a six-month loan.
Meanwhile, the Mirror believes Everton are ready to make a loan move for former MK Dons midfielder.
With clubs unlikely to pay big money for Alli because of his dip in form over recent months, a loan might be the only solution if he wants to leave Spurs.
Ultimately a temporary move would be best for all parties – Alli may even rediscover his best form if given the opportunity to prove himself elsewhere.
