Dele Alli wants to leave Tottenham ‘as soon as possible’, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Alli’s future has been the source of speculation for some time now, and the midfielder was left out of Spurs’ squad for Sunday’s win at Sheffield United, only increasing talk about a possible move away.
Last week, Romano – who is always reliable when it comes to transfers – claimed Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Alli but at the time Tottenham were unsure about letting him leave.
Now, Romano is reporting that PSG will step up their efforts to sign the 24-year-old on loan this week, and Alli wants the move to happen sooner rather than later.

And why wouldn’t he? Alli is barely playing at all now and isn’t even guaranteed to start against Wycombe in the FA Cup next week.
Romano says it is now up to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to make a decision, suggesting Mourinho’s mind is already made up – he is willing to let Alli go.
It looks like it will be an interesting final few days of the transfer window in north London.
