Dele Alli is pushing for an exit on deadline day but Spurs’ quest to find his replacement may have come up short.
Dele Alli’s hopes of sealing a deadline day exit from Tottenham have been handed a blow following comments from Inter Milan’s chief Giuseppe Marotta.
The England International is pushing to be allowed to seal a reunion with Pochettino at PSG. However, this is something Mourinho has reportedly given his approval to although the final decision lays with Daniel Levy.
With Tottenham losing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to injury, Levy is said to not be keen on losing Alli unless a replacement is lined-up. This has led to a resurgence of interest in Eriksen who has endured a tough 12 months under Antonio Conte. And, seemingly, the Denmark international held the key to Alli’s chances of an exit.
“As Antonio Conte said, If there are some players who are unhappy and want to find other clubs, it’s not right to withhold them”. Said Marotta.
“We do not have any of those situations. Therefore, this is the squad we will have at our disposal until the end of the season. When you are in a bug club, there are no starting players or deputies. There are just professionals who must answer to the coach and his decisions. A player can play less than one of his team-mates but still manage to be more influential”.
“Over the course of the campaign, Eriksen too can have an important role in the team. Whether he plays more or less”.
