Dele Alli is planning for an exit from Tottenham Hotspurs in January with a loan contract lengthening for 18 months.
Alli used to be an indispensable part of Spurs’ starting-11 squad of Mauricio Pochettino. The Englishman was also in the Golden Boy 2016 nomination list, but Dele Alli now is planning for an exit from Spurs, the club that he has been playing for since 2015.

Alli was an important part of Pochettino empire, making his debut with the first team in 2015, at the age of 19. The former graduate of MK Dons then became a regular option of Spurs’ first team, joining Harry Kane and Son Heung-min to create the perfect trio of Pochettino.
But under the running of Jose Mourinho, Alli lost his first place advantage and become a part of the substitute. Alli is even an irregular option of the substitution, losing his position to Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks, and the new Danish destroyer Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Several clubs around Europe now put their eyes on the next move of Alli. The list includes big names from France such PSG and AS Monaco. Italian AC Milan and Inter Milan, and German RB Leipzig are the other clubs that follow Alli’s next step.
Apparently, Jose Mourinho confirmed that Alli was not a bad player at all, and the reason why he was eliminated from the first team was all about his attitude. The bad attitude on the training ground force Mourinho to put off Alli name from the starting-11 squad.
Mourinho said that Sir Alex Ferguson also admired the talent of Alli and had chance to sign with him beforehand. Alli was a talent of England, but he now is struggling to find his way back into the national squad. The former member of England national team participating in World Cup 2018 potentially could stay at home and watch his teammate play at European Championship.
