Dele Alli is reportedly set to be abandoned by Everton in the summer – just months after the Toffees gave the former Tottenham man the chance to kick-start his career
Alli got cold at Spurs before Lampard rolled the dice take the midfielder to Merseyside in an eleventh hour deal in January less than in one of his first acts at the club. This move is considered risky as the England international has dropped significantly in the past few years.
Both Alli and Lampard was resolute that a fresh start at Goodison Park could help the midfielder revive his career – but that initial optimism is showing alarming signs of optimism.
The 25-year-old has struggled to make any impressions at Everton, with reports suggesting the club are now planning to get rid of the former England star in the summer.
Still only 25 years old, Alli is yet to start for the Toffees and has only 169 minutes to play in six substitute appearances.
Everton have not paid him a fee up front, but have agreed to pay Tottenham what could be as much as £40m if various performance-related incentives are met – that seems extremely unlikely. happening.
Instead of reviving his career, Alli continued to babble under Lampard. Given that he is a powerful shield for Harry Kane during his best years at Tottenham, linked with the best midfielder in Premier League History seems to be a match made in heaven.

Lampard has worked hard to defend Alli .’s hard start to live at the club earlier this month, but with Everton caught up in the relegation battle, the new man must find form soon if he has a future at Merseyside.
Unless something changes dramatically in the final month of the Premier League season, it’s hard to know where his focus will be next season.
The former Republic of Ireland and Sheffield United goalkeeper is the latest former top star to question Alli’s struggles. And Kenny believes his attitude must be questioned after he began his slow life at Everton.
Kenny told teamTALK : “You’d think a change of scenery would get him a good world but he’s clearly not training well enough. You have to question his attitude at this point. , I can’t think of anything else that would stop him from competing.”
