Tottenham star Dele Alli reacts to Mauricio Pochettino being announced as PSG manager

Transfer update: Ozil, Alli and Lamptey latest

Tottenham star Dele Alli has liked an Instagram post announcing Mauricio Pochettino as the new PSG manager adding fuel to the fire he could move in the January transfer window. Pochettino has replaced Thomas Tuchel who was sacked by the French champions last month.

Alli is down the pecking order at Tottenham with Jose Mourinho preferring other options.

That has led to rumours the 24-year-old could make a switch to PSG in the January transfer window.

Alli has added fuel to the fire by liking that Pochettino – who he was previously managed by at Spurs – has taken over at Parc des Princes.

The England star has made just four Premier League appearances all season for Tottenham.

He was substituted in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Stoke and reacted angrily at Mourinho’s decision.

After the match the Special One said: “Yes, for me a player that plays in that position is a player that has to link and create and not to create problems for his own team.

“In that situation, an objective counter-attack would probably end with a goal, and it ended with a counter-attack behind our defenders.

“We were unbalanced because when you are in possession you have full-backs out wide and another midfielder in a different line and they caught us in a counter-attack and they transformed the result of the game that was totally in our hands, so yes I am upset.”

Alli would be more likely to move on loan to PSG with Daniel Levy a big fan of the man he signed from MK Dons.

Meanwhile, Perry Groves thinks it is time for Alli to leave Spurs.

He said on talkSPORT: “He’s Mourinho’s kicking block, isn’t he? Dele Alli is a player who flicks and when he’s confident, that’s part of his game.

“He’s trying a bit too hard because when you know the manager is on your case and doesn’t fancy you, you tense up a bit.

“I’m looking at him now and, for all parties concerned, it’s better if he gets a loan move.”

Tottenham want to compete for trophies this season under Mourinho.

They beat Leeds 3-0 in the Premier League on Saturday to move up to third and keep in touch with Liverpool and Manchester United.

Next up for Spurs is a Carabao Cup semi-final against Brentford on Tuesday evening.
