'Perfect Move' - Exclusive: Spurs transfer reveal by BBC has ex-striker bouncing
Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed Tottenham attacker Dele Alli would fit in perfectly at Paris Saint-Germain.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Aston Villa and England striker insisted the 24-year-old is in desperate need of a new challenge.
The BBC reported last week last season’s Champions League finalists are set to relaunch a loan move for the England international after a summer deal fell through.
Alli has fallen down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho this season and his only start in the Premier League came against Everton on the opening day where he was dragged off at half-time.
Asked by Football Insider whether a move to the French capital would suit Alli, Agbonlahor said: “We’ve seen Neymar is out with an injury so I think it would be the perfect move for him.
“We’ve seen Moise Kean not be able to do anything at Everton and go there and score goals. It would be the perfect move because they need players in that position.

“It would suit him, playing off the frontman with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe either side of him with Moise Kean upfront.
“I’m sure, from what I’ve seen of Dele Alli, he wouldn’t be scared to make a move to a different country as well.
“I’m sure he’d enjoy being in Paris and playing for a different team. I hope that move happens for him because he’s a great player that needs a new challenge.”
37-time England international Alli has played 231 times for Spurs across all competitions since his £5million move from MK Dons in 2015.
He has not played for the Three Lions since their 0-0 draw with Switzerland in June 2019.
