It’s been a hugely frustrating season for Tottenham star Dele Alli, who has found playing time hard to come by under manager Jose Mourinho.

The England international has had just 74 minutes of Premier League action so far, with the majority of his appearances saved for the Europa League.

With two goals and one assist in his 11 matches in all competitions, it’s evident that Mourinho hasn’t been impressed with what he has seen so far from the 24-year-old.

Alli has, therefore, been strongly linked with a move away from north London in the upcoming January transfer window. And several clubs have been eyeing the talented midfielder.

Here are three potential destinations for the once-favoured Spurs star.


Leading the race for Alli’s signature is Ligue 1 outfit PSG. And that is largely thanks to the reported imminent arrival of ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

According to Eurosport, if appointed, the Argentine plans to raid his former club. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and right-back Serge Aurier have been identified as targets, but Alli remains the number one priority.

The Toffees have been enjoying the new Premier League campaign under the guidance of manager Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian has already recruited high-quality talent in the likes of James Rodriguez and Allan.

Alli could be another to join the ranks at Goodison, where he would fit in well with the style of play and the club’s ambition, claims BBC pundit Danny Murphy.

As per the Daily Mail, the German club have warned off Spurs from attempting to sign their captain Marcel Sabitzer in January. The Austrian currently sits top of Mourinho’s wish list.

But a potential swap deal involving Alli may just be enough for the Bundesliga to consider any offers from Mourinho. The Spurs boss is reportedly equally eager to land Sabitzer as he is to offload his current midfielder.
