Football Insider have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to listen of offers for Dele Alli this summer.

Alli admitted on social media following Spurs’ 4-2 win over Leicester that this has been the hardest campaign of his career so far.

According to Football Insider, Jose Mourinho campaigned for the midfielder to be sold last summer as well as during the January transfer window.

It is said that Alli came close to completing a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain and Daniel Levy only pulled out of the deal due to the Ligue 1 giants’ unwillingness to pay the £3m loan fee demanded.

The report claims that the midfielder’s situation has not changed despite Mourinho’s departure, with Tottenham still prepared to listen to offers for him in the summer.

It is explained that one of the reasons Alli found himself back in the team under Ryan Mason and why he started the last five league games of the season is that the club wanted to put him in the shop window ahead of the transfer window.

However, it is alleged that Spurs have given up hope of securing a huge fee for the former MK Dons man.

While some fans would understandably be outraged if it is true that Levy was insisting on starting Alli only to put him in the shop window, the reality is that these sorts of things go on all the time at clubs.

The likes of Alli and Winks are valuable assets to Spurs and if the club is going to commit to selling them and rebuilding the squad, it is important to ensure that the players are not sold at a time when their values have depreciated.

There is no doubt that Dele’s value had dropped considerably under Jose and one of the reasons Levy could have sacked him is to give the midfielder one last chance to either prove his worth to the club or at least add around £10-£15m to his value.
