Tottenham have reportedly received a loan offer for Dele Alli from Paris Saint-Germain with Daniel Levy set to make a decision on the midfielder’s future. Alli had been a regular in Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up when he first took charge of Tottenham back in November.
He also picked up some good form under the Portuguese coach before the coronavirus pandemic forced the season to be suspended.
But Alli dropped down the pecking order at Spurs after the Premier League restart in the summer and that has carried over into the new campaign.
The 24-year-old started the first game of the season against Everton, but he was hauled off at half-time.
And his only appearance since came in the Europa League third-round qualifying win over Shkendija last week.

Mourinho has left Alli out of the matchday squad on four occasions already this season.
The Tottenham boss has faced repeated questions over Alli’s future at the club and the midfielder has attracted interest ahead of the transfer window deadline on October 5.
Reports in France have suggested PSG are the most keen on striking a deal for the England international.
And they’re hoping to test Spurs’ resolve with RMC Sport claiming PSG have made a loan offer to sign Alli.

The report states PSG and Tottenham have held discussions this week.
And the Ligue 1 champions are hoping Alli helps push through a move away from Tottenham.
Spurs chairman Levy though is said to be a big admirer of Alli and he’s reluctant to let him leave.
Speaking after the Carabao Cup win over Chelsea on Tuesday, Mourinho praised Alli for his professionalism in training.
“He’s being very professional, particularly yesterday when the team was preparing for the game and he wasn’t,” he said.
“It would be perfectly acceptable to have a lack of motivation, even a lack of professionalism for this training session but it was exactly the opposite.
“He trained very hard yesterday. He has my respect and the respect of his teammates so it’s possible he plays tomorrow.”
