SL View: Pochettino could revive Alli’s career
The French outfit are currently managed by former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine manager played a key role in Alli’s development at the London club and he could be the one to help resurrect the England international’s career once again.
The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs and he needs to leave in order to play regular first-team football.
Alli has started just one Premier League game for Tottenham this season.
A player of his calibre needs to play more often especially if he wants to cement his place in the national team squad for the upcoming Euros.
Spurs should look to consider a loan deal for the midfielder if they cannot guarantee him game time at the club during the second half of the season.
It would help the player regain his sharpness and also protect his value ahead of a potential sale in future.
It is evident that Mourinho is not impressed with the player and he recently questioned the lack of fight shown by the player.
Alli might not be able to win over the Spurs boss in the coming weeks and he seems frustrated with his situation at the club as well. A fresh start at PSG, even on loan, could give him some much-needed confidence boost.
