French giants Paris Saint Germain are confident that they will acquire the services of midfielder Dele Alli from Tottenham Hotspur.
According to The Telegraph, PSG will be taking in the England international on a season-long loan deal with the player said not to be in the plans of manager Jose Mourinho.
Alli has been snubbed in Tottenham's last two matches with reports from the UK indicating that Mourinho wants to work with Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard once again.
According to the reports, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is torn by the idea of Alli leaving the club, particularly now his reputation is at an all-time low, coupled with transfer fees now down due to COVID-19.
PSG have emerged as frontrunners for the 24-year-old and are now discussing a potential loan deal, which suits Levy.
Alli managed a direct hand in 12 league goals in 2019/20 with the player being a key figure in the first weeks of Mourinho’s era; six of his goals coming in the first four matches after Mourinho the Portuguese was appointed manager.
However, the recent behind-the-scenes documentary on Amazon revealed Mourinho criticising Alli as a 'lazy trainer' and his patience appears to have worn thin.
