Barcelona Plot Audacious Move For Tottenham Hotspur Star: Long-Term Replacement For Iniesta?

Dele Alli has become a dominant force in the Premier League. The English midfielder has taken his game to another level since arriving at the White Hart Lane. The youngster’s rise to fame hasn’t gone unnoticed and Barcelona reportedly are interested in bringing the player to Spain.

The Spanish giants failed big times in signing a coveted midfielder in the summer. The pursuit of Brazilian ace Philippe Coutinho looked possible at one time but Liverpool’s defiance over their star midfielder forced the Catalans to reverse their plans.

However, they are ready to raid the Merseyside club once again knowing it would be immensely difficult for them to have a clear chance of grabbing the player from the English outfit. Should they fail to make any move for the Brazilian playmaker, they would turn their attention to the English midfielder.

Alli is believed to be on the shopping list for a number of clubs but Barcelona have prioritised the signing of the midfielder and they are ready to offer Tottenham a huge sum in the range of £134m. When it comes to transfers Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been one of the strict negotiators and since he has been at the club, there has been a strict wage structure in place.

Alli signed a new deal in September and currently pockets around £50,000 a week. He has a contract till 2022 but the North Londoners are likely to offer a new deal to the player. He recently parted ways with his representative and the likes of Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola are currently fighting to be his agent.

Alli could earn a much much better pay packet if he does leave the club and the likes of Barcelona can offer him a much higher wage than he is currently getting at the club. He could be the perfect alternative for Andres Iniesta who has lost his previous charm.

In this season Mauricio Pochettino has given him the license to operate from a more advancing position and the 21-year-old is often seen in the opposition box. Alli has been very pivotal to Pochettino’s plans and the gaffer would be reluctant to let him go.

The fact that he is only 21 has created a stir among the top clubs and Real Madrid are also reportedly monitoring the movement of the player. Barcelona are ready to take a big leap and might make a formal offer to test their resolve in the winter transfer window. But do you think they can land Alli?
