According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli sat out training on Monday and Tuesday.
Alli was notably not in the squad to face Wycombe Wanderers on Monday night, with Jose Mourinho noting that he was carrying a knock.
Now though, it has emerged that Alli hasn’t even trained this week, and talks over a move to Paris Saint-Germain are though to be ‘intensifying’.
PSG want to take Alli on loan for the rest of the season, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to reunite with his ex-Spurs star – and Alli himself is interested in the move.
Alli hasn’t started a game since beating Marine 5-0 earlier this month, and hasn’t appeared in the Premier League for more than a month now.
Alli allegedly won’t be picked against Liverpool on Thursday night, and the final decision on a move to PSG rests with Daniel Levy.
The 24-year-old may simply have been held out from training due to his injury, but the report seems to suggest that it’s more down to the ongoing talks with PSG.
There isn’t long left to secure a deal now, and Alli may face being stranded at Tottenham for the rest of the season if PSG can’t secure a deal.
