Agbonlahor: Dele Alli tipped to explode at Tottenham as images emerge
Dele Alli will be hungrier than ever to succeed for Tottenham next season, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed England’s heroics at Euro 2020 will help inspire Dele to be “firing on all cylinders” next term.
The 25-year-old endured a difficult campaign last season as he managed just seven Premier League starts.
Five of those came at the end of the season under interim manager Ryan Mason.
He was handed just two league starts by Jose Mourinho but he recently told Goal he only blames himself for his difficult spell.
Dele has shown his determination in the summer break and posted pictures to his Instagram account of him training in Dubai before Tottenham pre-season.

“It’s hard for him after he had a disappointing season,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“It’s all about the relationship he has with Nuno Espirito Santo. If he works hard and listens to his manager then he can definitely have a good season.
“I’m sure he’s going to be hungry. He will see his mates who, for me, are going to win the Euros. He’s going to see that.
“Players like him and James Maddison are going to be even fired up for next season after hopefully seeing their mates win the Euros and doing so well with England.
“They’ll know now that it’s going to be even harder to get into that England squad now. Gareth Southgate’s going to have even more loyalty to this squad next season, even if they have a few bad games.
“That will be on his mind and he’ll want to come out firing on all cylinders next season.”
