Dele Alli, not so long ago, was one of England's great prospects for the future. However, his breakthrough did not have continuity and the player went from being one of the great promises of the country to simply being one more player in the Premier League.

In fact, he has not been relevant at Tottenham for a long time. Mourinho tried during his stay, but failed to recover him for the cause. And now, Antonio Conte does not give him the role he is looking for.

Dele Alli's last appearance on the pitch did not help his current situation

Dele Alli was one of those singled out in the game against Morecambe in the FA Cup. The Spurs were losing against a Third Division team when the coach took him off the field, leaving him under the spotlight along with Ndombele, who was booed, and Bryan Gil.

Sky Sports claims that Conte has so little confidence in him that the player has decided to pack his bags and leave in the winter transfer window. At the moment, it is not known if he has offers, but he knows he does not want to stay in London until the end of the season.

This season, Alli has made 18 appearances, although only ten were in the Premier League. Conte took the opportunity to give him more minutes in the Conference League, EFL Cup and FA Cup. In total, he amassed 1,044 minutes, two goals and one assist.

Tottenham would not frown upon his departure

Tottenham would be willing to let Dele Alli go, as long as he goes on loan. West Ham and Newcastle, so far, are the two teams that have shown interest in the player.

Dele Alli's contract with Spurs runs until 2024, but the player does not intend to stay there until then. We will see if, as the British press claims, he will be granted the exit he is demanding shortly.

The playmaker, meanwhile, would not be very convinced to go to Newcastle. He would prefer to try in some 'top' club, something that, according to 'TeamTalk', is going to be more than complicated.

The Hammers, on the other hand, would have Dele Alli as their second option, in case they fail to sign Manchester United's Jesse Lingard. 

At 25 years old, the Tottenham player, as reported by Sky Sports, would be very close to leaving the Spur discipline in this winter market, although, for the moment, it is not known what his destination would be.
