Newcastle United are in pole position to secure the services of Tottenham Hotspur outcast Dele Alli in January.

According to Fichajes, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to part ways with Dele Alli. The playmaker has no future at the club and has been told to pack his bags in the upcoming winter transfer window.

One of the clubs leading the race the sign the Englishman is Newcastle United. The Magpies are in the market for some experienced players in January, with Alli fitting the criteria well due to his pedigree at the highest level of football, coupled with his footballing skills that could come in handy for Eddie Howe during the second half of the campaign.

A member of Tottenham side since 2015, Alli hasn’t had much luck in North London in recent years. The attacker has struggled for form and consistency, while injuries haven’t been kind either. As a result, he has fallen down the pecking order at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 25-year-old’s importance in the first-team has dissipated further after the appointment of Antonio Conte. The Italian tactician has handed him only two minutes of action since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo as the manager. And it appears the player has finally found himself on the Italian’s chopping block as he looks to filter his team in January.

Alli might not be the only player leaving Tottenham next month, though, with the Lilywhites facing a decision over the future of Steven Bergwijn. The Dutchman has not managed to win over the fans since joining from PSV Eindhoven, and with Ajax reportedly interested, he could be on the verge of a return to the Eredivisie.

Another player linked with an exit from Spurs next month is Bryan Gil, with Sevilla reportedly seeking a loan move. While the young Spaniard may still have a future left in North London, the same cannot be said for Dele Alli, whose potential move to Newcastle could make a world of sense for both parties involved.

As mentioned earlier, the Englishman has had issues with lack of form and game-time. But that could change at NUFC, who will be prepared to offer him the opportunity of playing a central role in the team’s creative unit. It will give him the platform to potentially revive his career after a rough spell at Spurs, while the player himself will be looking to help the Magpies stave off relegation.
