Pundit Exclusive: Spurs would sell Dele by 5 October for this price after Romano reveal
Tottenham would accept an offer of £60million for Dele Alli this summer, according to Noel Whelan.
The former Leeds United striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, is adamant that Spurs would sell the 24-year-old at that price to “free up some money to spend in the transfer market”.
Fabrizio Romano claimed last week that the attacker had been offered to many clubs after he was left out of squads to face Lokomotiv Plovidiv and Southampton.
Dele Alli has been offered to many clubs on last few days. #THFC want him out after signing Gareth Bale. Real Madrid refused to get him on loan as part of the deal. PSG are in talks with his agents and considering him [as per @JBurtTelegraph]. Other clubs also in the race. 🚨

The Telegraph‘s Jason Burt reported that Paris Saint-Germain have began talks to sign the England international with the French giants “long-term admirers” of the midfielder.
Alli, who joined the Lilywhites from MK Dons in 2015, has four years remaining on his current deal at the club, having signed a contract extension in October 2018.
When asked by Football Insider how much be believed Alli to be worth in the current market, Whelan said:

“Dele Alli is worth about £60million even when he has not had a great season and a half at Tottenham.
“I think Spurs would snap your hand off at that price as well, quite frankly. It is something they would definitely take. His sale would free up some money to spend in the transfer market.
“Age is on his side and on his day he can be a real handful. That is why I think he will still command that kind of fee.”
If sold, Spurs stand to make a huge profit on Alli having bought him for just £6million from MK Dons in February 2015.
Jose Mourinho has already bolstered his squad with the signings of Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart this summer.
