However, Mourinho’s relentless decision not to name him in his squad came as a shock to both Alli and his Spurs teammates.

Alli scored eight goals in 25 Premier League appearances last season when Spurs finished sixth
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is believed to prefer a loan, knowing that Alli’s worth has suffered from a combination of poor form and a depressed transfer market.
PSG have a good relationship with Spurs, who have sold Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier to the Premier League for the past few years and that could help them close a deal before the October 5 transfer deadline.
Alli has four years left on the contract extension he signed in 2018, and Spurs hopes a loan will help him get back to his best shape.
Interest remains in Inter Milan’s Alli, but the Serie A club may struggle to fund a loan for the 24-year-old.
Last season, the former MK Dons midfielder, who joined the club in 2015, scored eight goals in 25 Premier League appearances as Spurs finished sixth in the top flight.
