Alli is one of the best young midfielders in the Premier League and is one of the best young players in the world.
The 21-year-old has established himself as a key figure in the current Tottenham team and is also an important player in the England squad.
England manager Southgate has praised the former Milton Keynes Dons youngster, and has said that he would be a better player with more consistency.
“Dele is an interesting player,” Southgate told The Express. “If you analyse his game closely, he’s a scorer of goals and he’s not necessarily the link player Adam Lallana is.
“So perceptions of players and their actual particular skill sets and areas where they are effective is not what’s commonly perceived.
“I go to games and I look at one person and how he plays, so you see the different attributes. Dele’s biggest strengths are arriving in the box, timing his runs, finishing and scoring goals.
“If he can add consistency into his touch and creativity of pass into that, he’ll be a better player than he already is.”
Alli’s form so far this season has not been great, but there is no doubt that the Spurs youngster is a superb footballer who could become world class in the coming years.
Given that he is only 21 years of age, the England international midfielder is still developing and has a lot to improve in his game.
