Sky Sports have revealed that Tottenham are now listening to loan offers for Dele Alli ahead of the January transfer window.
The 24-year-old has struggled for game time under two of the last Spurs managers, with yet to start a Premier League game since the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in September.
With us regularly linked with a January move for Jesse Lingard – a player who operates in a similar position to Alli – it would be no surprise to see us register an interest in the attacking midfielder who almost arrived on Tyneside from MK Dons many years ago.
Alli is no longer a young prospect at 25 and needs a move to resurrect what was a hugely promising career just a few years ago.
Given we are in need of Premier League quality players with a point to prove, a loan bid for Alli could make a lot of sense – especially if we miss out on reported top target Lingard.
Would you welcome a move for Alli next month, or would you prefer to see us look elsewhere?
