Alli ‘wanted by Brighton, Burnley and Everton as trio look to hijack Newcastle move for struggling Tottenham star’

PREMIER LEAGUE trio Brighton, Burnley and Everton are reportedly looking to hijack Newcastle’s move for Tottenham outcast Dele Alli.

The former England international could leave Spurs on a six-month loan by the end of the January transfer window.

Newcastle are believed to be leading the race for Alli but according to the Daily Mail the midfielder has a number of suitors.

Brighton, Burnley and Everton are all said to be monitoring Alli’s situation and could act if he is still at Tottenham closer to the January 31 deadline.

Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund are also reportedly interested, but a move to Germany seems unlikely.

Unfortunately for Tottenham and Alli, Manchester United legend Roy Keane was right.

When discussing the then 21-year-old Alli’s declining form, Keane expressed concern over potential burnout.

He said: “[A dip in form] can happen to a lot of you players, but I’m just worried about this kid with what he’s doing off the pitch.

“I see he’s doing a lot of business stuff, I still think those kids should focus on what you’re doing on the football pitch.”

Alli has also fallen out of favor internationally. The 25-year-old was once one of England’s hottest prospects.

But his last appearance dates back to 2019 against Switzerland.
