DELE ALLI’S time at Tottenham appears to be winding to a close.
Spurs have been great for Alli and Alli has largely been great for Spurs, but it looks like it’s time to say goodbye.

With manager Jose Mourinho continuing to blame his No20 when things go wrong following the win over Stoke, Alli, 24, appears destined to leave North London for good.
But where will the England international go? SunSport explores the attacking midfielder’s options.
Paris Saint-Germain are already the favourites to land Alli, having tried twice to take him on loan in the summer.
And with Mauricio Pochettino set to take over from the sacked Thomas Tuchel, their interest could be set to ramp up even further.
The prospect of reuniting with his old boss, as well as linking up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, may be too good to turn down.

The Red Devils have long been admirers of Alli, having first come across him while being trounced 4-0 by his MK Dons side back in 2014.
And with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trying to build a young, English core at the heart of the team, why not try again for the mercurial attacking midfielder?
United are already brimming with creative midfielders, I hear you cry. Well that’s true, but that didn’t stop them pouncing when Donny van de Beek became available – and may not deter them from grabbing Dele if the price is right.

Alli may not have ever quite been able to get over the line in winning a league title with Spurs.
But former England ace Danny Murphy thinks that maybe Steven Gerrard could convince him to go and help him win one north of the border.
Whether Dele would be up for it or not remains to be seen.

Antonio Conte has proven over the last 18 months that he simply cannot resist raiding the Premier League for a nice deal.
The Italian has recruited the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Moses, Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez since joining Inter.
And with Christian Eriksen having been transfer listed, maybe Dele could replace his old partner in crime at San Siro.

The Catalan giants are desperate for cheap reinforcements to help them try and drag their way into the LaLiga title picture.
Barcelona have played under a cloud of turmoil this season, with Lionel Messi’s desire to leave their prime concern.
But perhaps grabbing Alli on loan would help revitalise their attack, giving Messi another clever option to link up with in what could be his final six months at the club.
