According to The Telegraph, Paris Saint-Germain are confident of signing Dele Alli on a season-long loan deal before the transfer window shuts.

After Dele was left out of Tottenham’s last two match day squads, reports emerged that the midfielder had been offered to clubs around Europe.

In his post-match press conference following Spurs’ 5-2 win at St Mary’s on Sunday, Jose Mourinho refused to rule out the possibility of the midfielder leaving before the window closes (Football.London).

The Telegraph claims that PSG are confident of sealing a loan deal for the 24-year-old, as they have a good relationship with Tottenham after negotiating the Lucas Morua and Serge Aurier transfers in recent years.

While Daniel Levy is reportedly not prepared to sell Dele, there is said to be a growing feeling at Spurs that a loan move for the midfielder would benefit all parties.

With the Euros coming up next summer, it is said that the former MK Dons man does not want to spend the season on the bench and could be open to the transfer.

I would like to see Dele stay and fight for his place as I believe he is more than talented enough to work his way back into the starting line up and become an important player for us again. However, if we are to let him go (which seems likely after Jose’s comments the other day), loaning him out would make much more sense than selling the midfielder on a permeant basis.

Dele’s value has dropped considerably over recent years and so it is unlikely we will get more than £40m to £50m for him in the current market. However, if he demonstrates his quality by tearing up the Ligue 1 with PSG next season, not only will his value have gone up but we would also have a confident and on-form player on our hands.
