Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly set to discuss a loan move for Dele Alli in the coming days.
Mauricio Pochettino has made the midfielder his top target since arriving as Les Parisiens’ new boss.
Jose Mourinho left Dele, 24, on the bench for Spurs’ recent 1-1 draw with Fulham.
After which, the player looked glum on Instagram having made just four league appearances all season.
According to The Guardian, he is keen for a change of scenery in the final months of the season.
And a link-up with old Spurs supremo Pochettino could reignite Dele’s chances of making England’s European Championship squad.
But Tottenham are said to be against the idea of a loan exit, given their impending fixture mayhem as they compete on several fronts.
Talks are reportedly set to continue in the coming days.
SunSport stated last month that Dele is seen as a potentially vital asset in PSG’s assault on Ligue 1 and the Champions League.
Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle believes the midfielder must make a decision this month, as to whether he is happy to remain patient in the hope of an eventual opening in the starting line-up.
The 63-year-old told SunSport: “I can’t see him getting in at the moment, because they’re winning.
“He’s only being used in Europa football and the League Cup.
He’s going to have to wait for an injury, then he’s got to make a big impact on Jose.
“He’s not going to get in unless there’s an injury or a lack of form. The lack of form goes out the window because there’s a settled team there.
“He’s going to have to wait for an injury, then he’s got to make a big impact on Jose to play. I’m talking about playing week in, week out, and he needs that.
“If he feels he can’t do that, he needs to communicate that to the manager, and if he sees it that way as well, a loan deal could be possible.”
