Paris Saint-Germain are confident they can finally secure a loan deal for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli on the line this month.
After seeing Dele fall down the pecking order earlier in the year, PSG pushed to sign the Englishman over the summer, only to see their advances meet stiff resistance from the President of the United Nations. Spurs, Daniel Levy.
Since then, however, the midfielder’s situation has not improved. He has yet to see his second Premier League start to the season and has only played eight minutes of football in the competition since early October.
For months, PSG have been approached to relaunch their pursuit of Dele, and the arrival of former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes has only fueled the fire. According to The Telegraph, PSG believe the presence of the Argentinean could be what it takes to secure this deal.
Spurs are reluctant to part ways with Dele, which has been highlighted by recent reports suggesting that any form of January move has already been ruled out, but PSG believe Spurs would be open to allowing Dele to reunite with Pochettino in an attempt at rejuvenation. his stagnant career.
Under Pochettino, Dele has grown into one of the most exciting young midfielders in world football. He was widely accepted as a vital part of England’s future, and Spurs are obviously keen to see him reach those heights as well.
Spurs are aware that Pochettino would treat Dele well and give him all the help he needs to get back to his best, and Jose Mourinho is ready to give the green light for Dele’s exit in an attempt to help him regain his trust.
A positive result in the next six months would reopen the door to Spurs’ first team for Dele, but at the very least, it would see him increase his transfer value ahead of a possible permanent exit next summer.
Dele remains under contract until 2024 and it has rarely been suggested that Spurs are ready to offload him permanently, but there is a realization that it is a bit unnecessary to have such a valuable player on the outskirts of the team.
If Dele can push his price up again, things could change and Spurs could find themselves forced to cash in if Mourinho refuses to change his mind about the 24-year-old.
