Darren Bent has urged Dele Alli to take the chance to join Paris Saint-Germain on loan next month amid reports of interest from the French giants in the Tottenham midfielder.

The Daily Mail reported last week that PSG are set to make another loan offer for Alli next month after seeing their approach for the midfielder being rejected by Tottenham in the summer.

The report claims that Spurs are open to allowing the 24-year-old to leave the club on loan for the remainder of the season in order to reignite his career.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has also confirmed that Tottenham are coming around to the idea that a loan move away from North London for Alli would be the best solutions for all parties.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror have suggested that Everton are also keen on signing the midfielder on a temporary deal.

Bent believes that a move to PSG would be ideal for the former MK Dons man given the quality of players he will be playing with at the Ligue 1 giants.

When asked about PSG’s interest in Alli, the former Tottenham striker told Sky Sports News (11:05 am, December 13, 2020): “If I was him, PSG would be a fantastic move forward for him. Champions League, some of the best players in the world, just maybe a chance for himself to reignite his career.

“If he has still got aspirations at the end of the season of getting into the England squad, he needs to be playing week in week out.

“He needs to go somewhere where he is going to play all the time. If he goes to PSG and they allow him to do that, I think he has got enough time to get himself back in that England squad.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Seeing as Alli is not in Mourinho’s plans, a loan deal away from Tottenham will make sense for all parties as it would allow the midfielder to regain form and potentially add a few million to his value ahead of a potential summer sale. However, there would be no point in loaning him out to a team like PSG, where there is a very real risk that he will only be a bit-part player. A move to a club like Everton, where he is more likely to play week-in week-out would be preferably for Spurs.
