Tammy Abraham has urged Dele Alli not to be afraid to move abroad to get his career back on track after the midfielder’s struggles at Everton.

From being one of the most important players for Tottenham and England just a couple of years ago, Alli is now struggling to get minutes in a relegation-threatened Everton side.

The midfielder’s move to Goodison Park in January has not panned out the way he would have hoped, with the 25-year-old yet to start a single game for the Toffees. 

Reports indicate that Everton could move the Tottenham man on this summer, just six months after signing him (Daily Mirror).

Abraham believes the midfielder should take a leaf out of his book by trying his luck in other leagues.

The former Chelsea striker has been prolific for AS Roma since making the move to the Stadio Olimpico last summer and he insisted that he’s happy he took the plunge.

When he was quizzed on Alli’s struggles, Abraham told talkSPORT (as relayed by The Daily Express): “I feel like people shouldn’t be afraid to move abroad or to move away. They say ‘the Premier League is the best league in the world’. Of course, it has got top-quality.

“But don’t knock down different leagues. These leagues aren’t easy. Coming to Serie A. I never thought it would be easy. But coming to experience life away is probably the best thing I have done.

“It has given me the confidence to experience different cultures. People the way people engrave football in their skins, especially at Roma. The fans are so passionate. 

“So, I recommend players shouldn’t be afraid to move out of their comfort zone. There is a bigger world out there than just England.”

Reuniting with Pochettino at PSG would have been ideal for Dele as the Argentine would have helped restore some of his lost confidence. The move to Everton never seemed like a great fit for the midfielder as he is not the sort of player that teams need when they are scrapping for their lives at the bottom.
