Former Newcastle United and West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce said on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Thursday morning (broadcast from 6am, August 24, 2017) that Dele Alli potentially changing agents should concern Tottenham Hotspur.
According to a recent report in The Daily Mail, Tottenham and England international midfielder Alli is planning to switch agents.
The 21-year-old is earning £60,000 per week at Spurs at the moment, according to The Daily Mail, having joined the North London outfit from Milton Keynes Dons in February 2015 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £5 million.
The Daily Mail has claimed that the youngster planning to change agent will alert Europe’s biggest clubs to the possibility of signing him next summer.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are reported to be interested in Alli, who is one of the best and most promising young players in Europe.
Former England national football team manager Allardyce has given his take on the situation, and has also had his say on Danny Rose’s recent comments.
Earlier this month, the Tottenham defender gave an interview to The Sun in which he suggested that he should be earning more than he currently is, which is reported to be £65,000 per week by The Mirror.
The England international left-back also said that Spurs should sign players whose names he would not have to google.
“If I was anybody at Spurs or to do with Spurs, it would concern me slightly,” said Allardyce about Alli reportedly changing agents on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Thursday morning (broadcast from 6am, August 24, 2017).
“I don’t think whether that’s Dele getting ready to want to go to bigger and better things, I don’t know.”
“The other side of that shows you how ambitious Danny Rose is,” said Allardyce about Rose.
