Tottenham have expressed confidence on Dele Alli rejecting a move away from North London and committing his future to the club, according to reports.
There has been much speculation around the England international after it emerged he was switching agents when his current arrangement ceases. That led to concerns at Spurs he was paving the way for a transfer.
Tottenham are preparing a new contract and believe they can convince him to sign before he switches agent after next summer’s World Cup.
The deal offered will be a significant improvement on the £50,000-a-week six-year deal he signed last September.
Alli has been linked with virtually every major club in Europe after a superb 2016/17 season in which he scored 18 goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League. Among them are Manchester United and Chelsea, while even a move to Real Madrid has been mooted for the 21-year-old.
This season hasn’t started so well for Alli who has scored just twice so far. He’s also been in trouble for diving and a middle-finger gesture on England duty that earned him a one-match ban.
