Dele

If we are trying to force him out, I actually don’t know where he could go at this point. There’s no way he’s starting at any club better than us at this point IMO unless he really bucks his ideas up and I’m sure Levy would demand a ridiculous fee for him. Interesting to see where we go from here.
 
Jose has moved onto his next target. This one in my eyes is more deserving.

I think Dele has stalled and if he wants to carry on with us he needs to become a Thomas Muller type. Would actually take away our need for a striker too.

If he wants to carry on being a false midfielder, there’s the door.
 
The fact the players are stunned shows what a jerk circle the spurs squad has become.

Its simple.
Train well & play well - you play
Train badly but play well - you play
Train well but play badly - you play but not for too much longer
Train badly, play badly - you dont play.


The fact that spurs players have been playing on reputation regardless of performance is why we have won fuck all. Too many players coasting in 5* luxury and imo Dele has been the worst offender.
 
Mourinho was asked if Dele will be here when the window closes and he pretty much ignored the question. I think it was after Plovdiv.

Would not be surprised if we are looking to move Dele. Would be surprised if someone pays what we want for him. I wonder if the links with Zaniolo were to replace Dele.

I thought Dele looked good in pre season and it's a little shame that it has gone to this but it's different to find him a good role in our squad.
 
If there is no problem between Mourinho and Dele then he should be Captain against Orient. If not in the team with this week's schedule then there is a problem and Mourinho is not being truthful.
Been a dreadful week for Dele, taken off at Half time and then sees Ndombele back in favour and Bale arriving. He either knuckles down and performs or goes.

Exclusive: Paris-Saint Germain begin talks to sign Dele Alli from Tottenham
The Champions League finalists have long admired Dele are hopeful of completing a move ahead of deadline day

Paris Saint-Germain have begun talks to sign Dele Alli. The Champions League finalists are hopeful of securing Dele before the transfer window closes after he was left out of Tottenham Hotspur’s last two match-day squads.

Dele did not travel to Bulgaria for last Thursday’s Europa League tie against Lokomotiv Plovdiv and, even more surprisingly, was also omitted from the squad for Sunday’s Premier League fixture away to Southampton.

The 24-year-old was offered to Real Madrid as part of the negotiations that eventually saw Gareth Bale sign for Spurs on a one-season loan and Sergio Reguilon acquired for 30million euros (£27.5million).

The exact nature of the deal being proposed by PSG is unclear – whether it is a loan with an option to buy or a full transfer – but they have long-admired Dele and also like the idea of signing an English player.
Given that Spurs appear open to the possibility of loaning Dele then it may well be that PSG’s sporting director Leonardo will initially propose a temporary deal to see if the move works out.

Telegraph Sport revealed last week that Dele’s future was in doubt with the attacking midfielder having also been substituted at half-time during last weekend’s home defeat to Everton.

Dele is understood to have been left upset by the decision and by his omission from the past two match-day squads and it appears increasingly likely that he does not figure in the plans of manager Jose Mourinho.

Inter Milan have also expressed an interest in signing Dele, on loan, but it appears that PSG may have made the first move after receiving some encouragement that a deal is possible in the coming days.

Dele, whose contract at Spurs runs until 2024, may be attracted to the idea of making a move to get his career back on tracking having also lost his place in the England squad. He would also undoubtedly he attracted by the prospect of playing alongside the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar and competing again in the Champions League.

Personally would be really sorry to see him leave - based on his form of a couple of years ago he's a consistent golscorer and assist maker who was consistently getting 20+ combined goals and assists as part of the DESK (Dele, Eriksen, Son, Kane) that made Spurs a feared attacking side.

But he's not been playing or trying that hard for 2 years and although droppping his Boohoo activities (why the hell was he allowed to do it in the first place) he's not got back to that form, so maybe he does need a different place to re-discover himself.

However he's home grown and we don't have an excess of those in the squad (Hart, Doherty, Sessegnon, Dele and 3 club trained players), so if Dele goes think it means we want another HG player in.....Ings ?

And I think Southampton will want £40m+ for Ings, so think Dele may be sold to raise that kind of money, rather than it being a loan ?

Levy is balancing the books.

He doesn’t fit into the team unless you build the whole thing around him and his form hasn’t warranted that for two seasons. Shame though. Would be happy if it’s a loan.

I genuinely think moving would be best for HIM.

He's grown stagnant here. The Tottenham that allowed him to flourish for 2 seasons has moved on. That's what separates the best from the rest. Kane and Son for example have continued to perform regardless.

I just don't see where he fits in to the team. He can't play on the wing successfully and he isn't a central midfielder.
