Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino claims that the club have no reason to fear some of Europe’s biggest sides chasing their starlet Dele Alli.
The 20-year-old has become one of the most exciting youngsters in world football and is tipped to become a future star.
The Times reported on Friday that German champions Bayern Munich have showed an interest in signing the attacking midfielder, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are currently monitoring his situation.
It is understood they are eyeing Alli, despite him still having five years remaining on his current contract which see’s him earn £50,000-a-week.
Pochettino insists that Spurs fans should not be worried about losing their talented ace as he is settled at White Hart Lane.
“These things happen (speculation linking Alli with a move) when players and coaches are good and things are going well,” Pochettino said, as quoted by the Evening Standard. “But he (Alli) is very happy with us and Tottenham are creating a very good team and philosophy.
“He is enjoying his time here. We have no reason to be worried about that information.”
Alli has enjoyed a meteoric rise since he moved to the north London club in 2015 from MK Dons and has become a crucial player for Spurs.
The England international has quickly adapted to the Premier League and has been a standout performer this season.
He has made 30 appearances this campaign across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and supplying five assists.
Alli has been pushed further forward on the pitch into a more advanced role and has flourished alongside team-mate Harry Kane.
Pochettino is building a Spurs dynasty with a core of young English players and will be keen to keep Alli at the heart of that.
