- Jose Mourinho reportedly had a row with Dele Alli before Spurs loss to Everton
- The 24-year-old was substituted at half-time with Mourinho claiming his players are lazy
- Mourinho has admitted he is in search of a new striker before the window closes
Jose Mourinho and Dele Alli have fallen out before the Premier League defeat to Everton, Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor claims.
The Englishman was subbed off at half time and Agbonlahor claims he got the information from a likely source that both player and manager are not on good terms.
Agbonlahor told talkSPORT: “I feel like they need a No. 10 as well because I’m hearing from a good source that Dele Alli and Mourinho have fallen out.”
After the defeat to Carlo Ancelotti's side, Mourinho said in a post-match interview that he subbed Alli off because he wanted more creativity in the midfield, calling his team lazy.
The Portuguese boss also said he wanted to sign another striker to help reduce the pressure on Harry Kane.
Agbonlahor who played over 300 times for Villa and won three England caps said he believes Spurs need another frontman.
He added: “There’s a lot of pressure on Harry Kane.
“I feel if they don’t get a striker and get off to a bad start, I can see Mourinho walking or getting the sack.
“He is used to spending money. He is not used to begging for a striker.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Jose Mourinho is keen on adding more attacking options in his squad after Tottenham were comfortably beaten by Everton in the Premier League.
And Southampton striker Danny Ings is number one on the list following his 22 league goals for the Saints in last season's campaign.
According to Football London, Spurs are keen on the England striker who helped Southampton finish in 11th place last campaign.
Legit.ng also reported that Jose Mourinho has indirectly lashed out at newly signed Napoli striker Victor Osimhen for refusing to join Tottenham because of having competition with Harry Kane, according to Daily Post quoting Sporting Life.
The Nigerian international was been linked with several top clubs in Europe following his impressive performance for Lille before finally settling at Napoli for a record fee.
Osimhen's agent Ariyo Igbayiola claimed that he had discussions with Mourinho before the 21-year-old joined Gennaro Gattuso's side.
