Daniel Levy’s phone will be ringing off the hook if Tottenham are seriously open to selling Dele Alli for £25million.
That is according to former Spurs defender Alan Hutton who, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted suitors would be queuing up to sign the 24-year-old this summer.
As revealed by Football Insider last week, Tottenham have slashed Alli’s asking price by nearly half after demanding £45million during the January window.
It is understood Levy pulled the plug on a winter exit due to financial reasons but is now willing to accept a cut-price deal for the attacking midfielder.
Alli has made just two league starts this season in what has been a dramatic fall down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho.
However, Hutton insisted clubs would not be put off trying to sign Alli with his new price tag.
Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge: “If his price tag is £25million there will be a queue of teams, absolutely.
“They’ll be lining up to phone Daniel Levy to take him for £25million because he is young and we all know how talented he is.
“Yes, he’s had a bad spell for whatever reason. Has it really clicked with him and Jose Mourinho?
“It doesn’t look that way, even though he’s brought him back in. So there’s still issues there.
“£25 million for a player of that calibre, that you know if you can get the best out of him, he’ll be in the England squad, he will be scoring goals, he will be making assists.
“He’ll just make the team better. I think it’s a no brainer for £25million. Absolute no brainer.”
