Dele Alli is a key player in the current Tottenham Hotspur team.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has told TEAMtalk that Dele Alli is worth £50 million.

Alli is one of the best young midfielders in the Premier League and is a key player in the current Tottenham team.

The England international is playing well for Spurs at the moment and will be crucial in their quest to finish in the top four of the league table this season.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp recently told Sky Sports that All is now worth £50m, and that he could become one of the best midfielders in the world.

When asked if Alli is a £50m player, Pochettino told TEAMtalk: “Yes, why not. Today Dele Alli is showing a quality, a talent that it’s difficult to find in Europe at 20 years old.”

Alli has scored six goals and created 27 chances in 17 Premier League appearances for Tottenham so far this season.

The 20-year-old has not always been in great form this campaign, but he is now playing well and is showing what he is capable of.

Given that the Englishman is only 20 years of age, fans and pundits should be patient with him. Alli is going to make mistakes and will struggle for consistency for the time being.

Tottenham will take on Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
