Tottenham Face Battle to Keep Star Man Dele Alli as European Giants Circle

​Tottenham are facing a fight to keep 20-year-old Dele Alli, with European giants Real Madrid and PSG reportedly watching the midfielder.

Alli, who has scored three Premier League goals and contributed one assist in 15 appearances so far this season, joined Spurs in 2015 and has quickly become one of the hottest prospects in Europe. He scored 10 league goals during his debut season in the Premier League, making the transition from League One to the top flight seamlessly, and has also featured prominently for the England national team.

Alli recently signed a new long term deal with the White Hart Lane club, but the ​Daily Mail report both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have watched the former MK Dons star regularly over the past 12 months, while Spurs’ league rivals Manchester City are also eager to sign Alli in order to increase the amount of homegrown talent at the Etihad.

Spurs are yet to hit the heights of last season, while Alli himself looks unlikely to better his goal tally from last season. The midfielder is said to be happy playing under Mauricio Pochettino, and would not look to force through a move should either Real or PSG come calling. Having signed a fresh deal recently a move away in the near future seems unlikely, but his £60,000-a-week wages could easily be improved upon by some of Europe’s elite clubs.

Moussa Sissoko, a recent £30m signing, has come in for criticism so far this season, but his recent displays have given Spurs fans fresh optimism, and the France international has claimed he has now adapted to the north London club’s style of play.

“The intensity of the training. The style of how he wants us to play,” Sissoko revealed.

“What we do at the training. It was a lot of change. Every manager has his style of training.

“To come here it was not easy because a lot of things happened. I signed late, I didn’t have any preparation, a new system, a new job… a lot of change. I spoke with the manager and all the staff, and we tried to work on it at training.”
