Everton 'set to make January loan move for Tottenham's Dele Alli'

Everton ‘set to make January loan move for Dele Alli’ with out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder desperate to escape Jose Mourinho and boost his chances of an England recall for Euro 2020

  • Everton are interesting in signing Dele Alli on loan from Tottenham in January
  • Alli has fallen way down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho in north London
  • He wants more football to boost his chances of making England’s Euros squad
  • Carlo Ancelotti is keen on a move for either Alli or his team-mate Harry Winks 

Everton are reportedly ready to launch a January loan move for out of favour Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli.

Alli has made just one Premier League start since the opening day of the season and has fallen way down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho.

Spurs are top of the Premier League and Mourinho appears to have a preferred starting XI that Alli does not feature in.

Everton are reportedly willing to make a loan move for out of favour Tottenham star Dele Alli

Jose Mourinho has not started the midfielder in the Premier League since the opening day

He came off the bench for five minutes against Crystal Palace on Sunday but had not played in the top flight since October before that, a 21-minute cameo at Old Trafford.

Alli has also played just four times in the Europa League too and was left on the bench for last week’s European win over Royal Antwerp.

Now Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring the England international to Goodison Park when next month’s transfer window opens.

According to The Mirror, the Italian wants to sign either Alli or his Tottenham team-mate Harry Winks.

Both players are worried about missing out on a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for next summer’s delayed European Championships if they do not get enough first-team football. 

Carlo Ancelotti is hoping he can lure Alli away from north London to Merseyside next month

Ancelotti is also a fan of Harry Winks, who is also struggling for regular game time at present

Ancelotti is said to be an ‘admirer’ of both players and believes they can offer something different to Everton’s current midfielders.

Alli is said to be willing to leave Spurs next month. 

But Everton will face intense competition from French giants Paris Saint-Germain who, as Sportsmail reported last week, are set to make another offer for Alli in January.

PSG had a number of attempts knocked back in the summer but now Mourinho is willing to sanction a move away. 

Ancelotti spent big on his midfield in the summer, bringing in Allan from Napoli, Abdoulaye Doucoure from Watford and James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

He also has Andre Gomes within his ranks, Tom Davies and Gylfi Sigurdsson competing for game time.
