If emerging reports are to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur outcast Dele Alli could be in for more trouble as José Mourinho targets a new attacking midfielder this January …
Which is the word?
According to the Spanish newspaper Sports worldThe Spurs are looking for a move on RB Leipzig talisman Marcel Sabitzer next month.
The ‘Special One’ is claimed to be willing to pay £ 45 million for his signing, and while they suggest it would be to replace Tangy Ndombele, who is wanted by La Liga giants Barcelona, it seems more likely that the discarded Alli heads for the exit door.
Would you like to see Marcel Sabitzer make it to the Spurs in January?
90min claimed earlier in the month that the Englishman was considering an 18-month loan exit from the North London squad with teams like Monaco, Inter and AC Milan, and Paris saint germain all / none.
Goodbye Share Alli?
The writing seems to be on the wall for the 24-year-old midfielder, as despite the increase in numbers from seven to nine on the substitute bench, Mourinho still turned him down in his call-up of the match against Leicester City on Sunday.
In fact, Alli has only appeared four times in his 14 Premier League matches this period, playing a total of 74 minutes, via Transfer market.
Bringing in Sabitzer, who plays a role similar to yours, would certainly push him closer to an exit.
Spurs fans will recognize him all too well when he led Leipzig’s knockout victory in the Champions League last season, while this season the £ 31.5 million The Austrian sensation has continued its fine form by delivering three goals and three assists in all competitions.
Adding to its whopping 16 goals and 11 assists last year.
By Who scoredThe 26-year-old has averaged at least one key pass per game in his last three seasons in Leipzig, so perhaps he can take on the role that Christian Eriksen left behind, as clearly neither Tanguy Ndombele nor Giovani Lo Celso have taken the bull by the horns yet.
Sabitzer has been compared to David Beckham for his composition skills, which would have more similarities with the Danish master.
It has also been described as a player who “gives everything for 90 minutes” and as a “goal threat” both for his international coach, Franco Foda, and for the national coach, Julian Naglesmann, respectively.
According to journalist Alasdair Gold on football.london, he is a player that the Spurs “absolutely adore,” so it’s very likely that these reports lean a bit on the truth.
It could be goodbye, Alli and Guten Tag Sabitzer will arrive at the end of next month.
