The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has reported that Dele Alli is unlikely to complete a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain before the transfer window closes but two other first-team players could seal moves away.
Dele Alli has not started a Premier League game since the opening day clash against Everton, where he was taken off at half-time.
Jose Mourinho has said that the midfielder is currently out-injured but it remains to be seen if he likely to be brought back into the fold, with Tottenham missing Harry Kane for a couple of weeks.
Kilpatrick revealed that despite Alli’s eagerness to be reunited with Mauricio Pochettino at PSG, Tottenham have held resolute on their determination not to let the England international leave without bringing in a replacement for him.
With a replacement now looking unlikely, the journalist claims that the former MK Dons man is set to stay at Spurs.
However, Kilpatrick did add that Paulo Gazzaniga is hoping to find a new club in Spain while Gedson Fernandes could also end his loan spell at the club despite having 6 months left to run on his 18-month deal.
Spurs Web Opinion
I have to admit that I suspected that Alli would eventually get his loan move to PSG on deadline day but it now appears as if the midfielder might have to stay put at Spurs. We will never know whether or not Kane’s injury influenced Mourinho’s thinking regarding Alli but I suspect it was Daniel Levy who was reluctant to move Alli on rather than the Tottenham boss.
