Recent reports claim that Chelsea have returned their attention towards Tottenham superstar Dele Alli.

Express is reporting (via Sportskeeda), that the Premier League champions have made a whopping £88 million bid for the English midfielder. The 21-year old has been in form for the Hammers and there have been many speculations linking the players with a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

However, Tottenham are understandably reluctant to sell their star player. Spurs’ manager Mauricio Pochettino has made Tottenham into Premier League title contenders and the board at the North London Club is reportedly reluctant to sell Dele Alli to their direct rivals even for a fee as massive as £88 million.

The England international first made the move to White Hart Lane in 2015 from MK Dons for just £5 million and he has proven to be one of the greatest bargain signings of all time. The midfielder has played an integral part in Tottenham’s third place and second place finishes in the last two seasons.

Alli has scored an impressive 32 goals and provided 24 assists so far and he is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in world football at the moment.
