In a recent tweet, A Spor journalist Sercan Dikme offered an update on the future of Everton playmaker Dele Alli. It is understood that the English talent wants to part ways with the Toffees this month in favour of a move to Besiktas.
Everton’ın bugün maçı var, Dele Alli az önce kulübüyle görüşüp maç kadrosunda olmak istemediğini söyledi.
Dele için Beşiktaş yönetimi ve profesyonelleri yoğun çaba sarfediyor. Everton’ın istekleri halledilmeyecek derecede değil.
Oyuncu Beşiktaş’ı çok istiyor.

Alli’s Growing Struggles At Goodison Park
Alli has struggled to play a prominent role for the Merseyside club recently as he has failed to be consistent for them with his contributions in the final third. The 26-year-old made 13 appearances for the Toffees last season but didn’t manage to find the back of the net or assist a goal for them thus far.
The English sensation is in dire need of regular playing opportunities if he wants to get his career back on track. At the moment, Alli is on the fringes of Frank Lampard’s squad, so it is no surprise that he wants to make a switch to Besiktas in search of greener pastures this month.
At 26, the former Tottenham Hotspur player is about to enter the peak stage of his career and can’t afford to waste any more years warming the bench. Maybe a switch to Turkey could help him to turn his fortunes around for the better in the not-too-distant future.
Should Everton Boss Frank Lampard Cut Alli Loose This Month?
Alli is currently lacking confidence which could be why he has struggled to be productive in front of the opposition goal. On his day, he can still be a decent playmaker on the attacking end of the field and has got the natural ability to strike the ball purely from long range.
However, things are just not working out for him at Goodison Park. He is looking like a shadow of his former self these days but could still benefit from opting for a change of scenery before the end of this month.
Alli usually likes to play in the number ten position as an attacking midfielder but can also play as a right-winger or as a box-to-box midfielder if required. Despite his quality and versatility, there is no denying that he is currently surplus to requirements at the Merseyside club.
Therefore, Everton head coach Frank Lampard should consider cutting Alli loose before the end of this summer transfer window. The Toffees would be better off cashing in on him and investing the money generated from his sale to strengthen other areas of their match-day squad.
