Tottenham midfielder

Paul Robinson has urged Tottenham to not to sell midfielder Dele Alli to a fellow Premier League top-six contender.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Tottenham and England goalkeeper believes the 24-year-old could rediscover his form away from north London.

Alli was left out of Spurs’ 18 man squad for the second consecutive game on Sunday, with boss Jose Mourinho claiming his squad was too big.

He was last seen in a Spurs shirt in their 1-0 loss to Everton where he was dragged off at half-time by Mourinho.

The Telegraph reported that Paris Saint-Germain are confident that Alli will move to the French capital on a season-long loan deal with Inter Milan also interested.

Asked by Football Insider where Spurs should sell the England international to an English or overseas club, Robinson said: “I’d hate to see him go to another top 6 competitor.

“He’s been at Spurs for such a long time now, he’s been such a good player for Spurs.

“OK, the last 18 months he hasn’t done it, he hasn’t performed to the level we know he can and expect, but I would hate seeing him go to another top-six contender and go there and flourish and be the player he was two years ago.”

Alli still has four years left on his contract after he signed a six-year deal in 2018.

Last season the Milton Keynes-born midfielder scored nine goals and provided six assists in all competitions for Tottenham.

Since joining the club in 2015, Alli has played 223 times for Spurs and netting 62 goals and contributing 55 assists across all competitions.
