There are only a few days left until the January transfer window closes, and Tottenham Hotspur has yet to make any additions or subtractions. However, one player that could be heading out in the coming days is midfielder Dele Alli.
Over the past few weeks, the 25-year-old’s name has been linked to a possible departure. Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane called for Tottenham to move on from Alli as it’s in the best interest of both parties to seek a fresh start.
“That’s the nature of football. You’ve done your time here; you’ve obviously lost your way, be good to the kid; you’ve been a good signing for us. They paid £5m for him, let the kid go.”
With few days left until the window closes, Keane calls for Alli to move to a club like Newcastle United, where the England international will be loved, especially if he helps them remain in the Premier League and avoid relegation.
It will be interesting to see whether Alli or Tottenham accept a deal that would see them both part ways.
For Alli, a move where he can get significant playing time and perhaps put his name for the England national team is what he should strive for these next few months. Meanwhile, for Spurs, they can move on with their project with Antonio Conte at the helm.
