September 23rd 2020 – PSG are confident Dele Alli wants to join the club as talks with Tottenham continue over a 12-month loan deal.
Alli started the opening game of the season against Everton but was hauled off at half-time and then left out of the trips to Lokomotiv and Southampton.
The arrival of Gareth Bale on a loan deal from Real Madrid has also intensified competition for places and forced Alli out of the first-team picture.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to prefer a loan move, in the knowledge that Alli’s value has suffered through a combination of poor form and a depressed transfer market.
“Before we had time to settle and see what our new signings and the team could deliver, injuries to several principal players beset us,” said Levy.
PSG has a good relationship with Spurs having sold Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier to the Premier League side in recent years and that could help them to clinch a deal before the transfer deadline on October 5.
Alli still has four years left on the contract extension he signed back in 2018 and Spurs are hopeful a loan move will help him to recapture his best form.
