Former Newcastle United midfielder, Rob Lee has claimed that Tottenham could be looking at Florian Neuhaus as a potential replacement for Dele Alli in the summer amid speculation linking Spurs with a move for the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder.
Reports indicate that Tottenham are in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a loan move for Alli until the end of the season.
The midfielder does not seem to be in Jose Mourinho’s plans and it remains to be seen whether he has a long-term future at Spurs.
Meanwhile, Sport1 reported last week that Tottenham are one of the clubs interested in snapping up Neuhaus, who has been one of Gladbach’s best players for the best part of two years.
The report claims that Spurs face competition from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for the German international, who has a release clause of £35m in his contract.
Speaking about Tottenham’s interest Neuhaus, Lee told Football Fancast: “He’s a great player. He gets forward and scores goals.
“Maybe Dele’s going to go in the summer, which he probably should do. Maybe he could be a replacement for Alli.”
The pundit also urged Newcastle to snap up Alli, insisting that the Tottenham man is just what the Magpies need.
He said: “I’d love to see him (Dele) at Newcastle. I think he’d be ideal.
“They need a creative player and they can have Wilson up front with him (playing) off.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I very much doubt Alli would be interested in a move to Newcastle as the way Steve Bruce sets the team up with numbers behind the ball will not suit the Tottenham man.
I do not see Neuhaus as being a like-for-like replacement for Alli as the German thrives in a slightly deeper role but he would add goals from midfield which is something we have been lacking this season.
