Paris Saint-Germain confident Dele Alli wants to join club on 12-month loan as talks continue with Tottenham ahead of October 5 transfer deadline
- PSG and Spurs discuss terms of 12-month loan deal for Dele Alli
- Alli was knocked out at half-time in the club’s loss to Everton
- The signing of Gareth Bale by Tottenham has also intensified competition for places
Paris Saint-Germain are confident Dele Alli is keen to join the club as talks with Tottenham continue over a 12-month loan deal.
Alli started the season opener against Everton but was sent off at half-time and later ruled out of trips to Lokomotiv Plovdiv and Southampton.
The arrival of Gareth Bale on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid has also intensified competition for places and forced Alli to drop out of the first team picture.

Alli has been left out of Tottenham’s last two squads against Plovdiv and Southampton
The England international has struggled for consistency for much of the last two seasons
However, Mourinho’s ruthless decision not to name him in his squad came as a shock to Alli and his Spurs teammates.
The England international has struggled for consistency over the past two seasons but has been a regular since Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino.
According to the Telegraph, PSG are now the favorites to be his next club, although the two sides are only discussing a loan rather than a permanent deal.

Alli scored eight goals in 25 Premier League games last season as Spurs finished sixth
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is believed to prefer a loan move, knowing Alli’s value has suffered from a combination of poor form and a depressed transfer market.
PSG have a good relationship with Spurs having sold Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier to the Premier League in recent years and that could help them secure a deal ahead of the October 5 transfer deadline.
Alli has four years left on the contract extension he signed in 2018 and Spurs are hoping a loan spell will help him get back to his best form.
Inter Milan remain interested in Alli but the Serie A club could struggle to fund a loan move for the 24-year-old.
Last season the former MK Dons midfielder, who joined the club in 2015, scored eight goals in 25 Premier League games as Spurs finished sixth in the top flight.
