Loftus-Cheek is 21 years of age and operates as a midfielder, and he is currently on loan at Crystal Palace.
The England Under-21 international joined Palace on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
The youngster’s performances for the Eagles so far this campaign have been encouraging, and he is set to make his debut for the England national football team against Germany this evening.
Former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Wilkins has spoken highly of Loftus-Cheek, and believes that he can be as good as Alli.
Alli is one of the best young players in the Premier League and has established himself as a key figure for Tottenham.
The 21-year-old England international is also a regular in the England starting lineup when he is fit.
Wilkins told talkSPORT about Loftus-Cheek: “This fella has great technique. He’s got two feet, he’s got energy and pace, he can score a goal and he can create goals.”
“Dele has played around 200 games now and he’s only 21 - I honestly do believe Loftus-Cheek has the ability to be equally as good as him, no question about it,” added Wilkins.
