Dele Alli ‘wanted by PSG and Inter Milan’ with Tottenham star left out of Europa League squad after Mourinho bust-up

DELE ALLI is being chased by Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan amid rumours of a rift with Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho, reports claim.

The England international started Sunday's Premier League opener against Everton.

But manager Mourinho hooked him at half-time as Spurs slumped to a dismal 1-0 defeat to the Toffees.

And the Portuguese, 57, then dropped Alli from his travelling party altogether as Tottenham faced Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria.

While Spurs managed to squeeze past the Bulgarian minnows late on, questions persist over Alli's future in North London.

According to the Mail Alli, 22, has long been on PSG's radar - while Antonio Conte at Inter Milan has been an admirer since witnessing his exploits first-hand while Chelsea manager.

Agreeing a deal in the wake of Covid-19 may be tricky, however, with Alli having been valued at £100million by Spurs chiefs not long ago.

But should Tottenham decide to let him ago, they would prefer to flog him abroad so as to not strengthen a Premier League rival.

It had been suggested that Alli could be included in a deal to bring Gareth Bale back to Tottenham.

But Spurs managed to agree a loan for the Welshman without including their No20.

Rumours have been rife that Alli has fallen out with Mourinho, with ex-England international Gabriel Agbonlahor claiming that the pair had a bust-up prior to the Everton match.

But Mourinho himself played down any such issues after the Everton defeat.

He said: "Dele is a very polite guy, very calm. He's a bit introspective, when you think a lot about things.

"The way he reacted was Dele. It was quiet, sad, but in the end, after the game, he was just one of many.

"And I never saw from him in here with myself, with the other players, everybody at the club, I never saw a strong reaction. A good boy. A really good boy."
