Everton are already keen to sell Dele Alli this summer with Tottenham primed to receive a small fee from any transfer, according to The Sun.
The 26-year-old joined the Toffees in January but has struggled to make an impact at Goodison Park, making just nine appearances for the relegation-threatened club (Transfermarkt).
But the deal for the England international, which was noted down as a free transfer, still has the potential to be worth up to £40 million for Tottenham if certain performance bonuses are met (Sky Sports).
The Mirror report that Spurs are due a first £10 million payment if Alli tallies 20 appearances for Everton, although that may not head their way if he makes an early departure.
The Sun claim Everton are already considering offloading Alli and have set an asking price of £20 million for the former MK Dons man ahead of the summer transfer window.
But Frank Lampard’s side are not set to take the full amount of the proceeds, with the report going on to note that they will have to pay 25 per cent of any earnings to Tottenham.
Alli has not recorded a single goal contribution during his rare time on the pitch for Everton and is still waiting to earn his first start for the club.
Everton are currently sitting 16th in the Premier League table just two points above the relegation zone, but will be hoping to lift themselves to safety when they host Crystal Palace tonight.
Spurs Web Opinion
Alli’s move to Everton has been a big disaster for him, but not so much for the club considering they have not paid anything as of yet.
His value has massively dropped off over the last few seasons and that shows with Everton’s asking price, so it shows why Spurs were so keen to offload him so desperately in January.
