Tottenham are extremely confident that they will keep playmaker Dele Alli during the summer transfer window, according to a report.

The attacker has become a crucial part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side and has been tipped with a big-money move away to a European giant.

He has been in sensational form so far this season during his 41 appearances, scoring 18 goals and supplying 10 assists in return.

The England international has helped Spurs up to second in the Premier League and is set to play a massive role if they are to overhaul the seven-point gap to leaders Chelsea.


Football Insider verdict:

Spurs fans should be thrilled if Alli is set to stay with the club as he can be the difference for them going forward. Pochettino wants to help transform the club into a European heavyweight and has helped build a very strong starting line-up, with youngster Alli at the heart of their success. They need to show intent by keeping their star players if they are to move forward, unlike the times they sold Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in the past. Spurs have the potential to compete for the Premier League title every season and Alli can become a club great if he stays. The attacker has improved drastically this season and is proving to be a real handful in front of goal, while also possessing brilliant technical ability.
