Jose Mourinho open to Dele Alli exit, but wary over injury risks

According to The Athletic (subscription required), Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is open to letting Dele Alli leave in January. But there is a wariness over sanctioning a transfer as the club might need him if there are injuries in the squad.

Alli has been with Tottenham since 2015. However, over the past year, the 24-year-old has gone from being a key player to a peripheral squad member. Indeed, the England international has hardly been used by manager Mourinho this term.

The exit's that way Dele - Mourinho forcing Alli out?

Mourinho has hardly used Alli this term

Alli has made just 11 appearances across all competitions for Tottenham this term. He has scored two goals and assisted one more. The Englishman has started just one Premier League game all season, leading to speculations over his future at the club.

It has been claimed that Tottenham are against sanctioning an exit in the ongoing transfer window.

However, it seems that Mourinho would be open to letting the former MK Dons star leave. At the same time, it is said that both the manager and chairman Daniel Levy are wary over the possibility of losing him and falling short on options should injuries befall the squad. (h/t The Athletic)

Tottenham have seen Giovani Lo Celso already struggle with fitness problems this season. Tanguy Ndombele, too, hasn’t been playing at full fitness, failing to complete ninety minutes even in a single Premier League games so far. Then, there’s Gareth Bale, who has spent more time out on the sidelines than on the pitch.

So, it is understandable that there are concerns over sanctioning a sale. Squad depth is of paramount importance this term, given the cramped schedule and the number of competitions we are playing in.
