A Paris Saint-Germain move makes sense for Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli, especially after he has been thrown under the bus by Jose Mourinho.
That is the view of ex-Arsenal forward Kevin Campbell, who spoke exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams amid news that the nine-time Ligue 1 winners are plotting a January loan swoop for the England international.
It is a move which would almost certainly see him reunited with his old boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is destined for the PSG managerial hot seat, and for whom the 24-year-old played the best football of his career.
In light of this, Campbell can see why a move to France is an attractive proposition for Alli, who has been verbally hung out to dry by Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese’s arrival at the club in November 2019.
He told Football Insider: “He can go there and get a new lease of life because the life has been squeezed out of him at Spurs by Mourinho.
“It’s not nice to see.
“Dele Alli knows exactly how Poch plays, his training methods etc. He’s an England international and he’s someone Pochettino knows he can rely on.
Alli signed for Spurs in a £5million move from MK Dons in 2015, making his debut for the club the following season after initially being loaned back to Stadium MK.
Since then he has made 233 Tottenham appearances, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year Award in successive season in 2015-16 and 2016-17.
