AS Monaco could move for Tottenham ace Dele Alli in January
The 24-year-old England international has been with Spurs since 2015, having signed from lower division outfit MK Dons. He had been an integral part of the club’s rise in stature under Mauricio Pochettino, establishing himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in the country.
However, over the past year or so, Alli’s form has been on a steep decline. While he did show signs of resurgence under Jose Mourinho towards the end of last year, the Englishman has struggled to build upon it.
Now, Alli’s situation is a bit worrisome as the midfielder finds himself frozen out of the side by Mourinho. Indeed, Alli has started just two matches across all competitions this term. His last appearance came in the Europa League against Royal Antwerp when he was hauled off at half-time by the manager.
There have been speculations that Paris Saint-Germain could return with an offer for Alli in January, having failed to sign him in the summer. And now, they could be joined by domestic rivals Monaco in the pursuit of the England international. (h/t Football.london)
