Former Tottenham midfielder David Ginola believes Dele Alli should leave the club on loan on transfer deadline day.

The Telegraph report that Paris Saint-Germain are expected to come with an improved loan bid for the England midfielder today.

And Ginola told Sky Sports News (09:21am, 05/10) that he feels it would be a good idea for Alli to leave.

“In the second half you could see Dele Alli was very cautious about not losing the ball, not doing any of these special things we know he is capable of,” said Ginola.

“Doing that in Paris would be a new challenge for him, I don’t see why not. We haven’t had any English players playing for Paris.

“For Spurs, we mentioned Son, Kane, Bale, if he wants to play there, he needs to improve his game.”

There’s no doubting Alli isn’t especially in favour at Spurs right now.

The redemption of Tanguy Ndombele may give him some hope that he can turn his Spurs career around in a similar way.

But it won’t be easy for Alli to do that. Spurs are flying without him right now.

Would it be easier at PSG? It’s not easy to see why it would be, because Thomas Tuchel has a star-studded squad to choose from.
