Dele Alli is reportedly prepared to dump Tottenham following a row with manager Jose Mourinho and former Arsenal star Ray Palour has urged the Gunners to launch a bid for the England star.
The 24-year-old has an uncertain future with Spurs as reports say he recently had a fall out with manager Jose Mourinho.
Alli was branded ‘lazy’ by Mourinho and he was substituted at halftime during their Premier League home loss to Everton in their Premier League season opener.
Mourinho dismissed earlier reports that Alli was left out of the squad due to injury as the manager made it clear that the decison is a ‘tactical’ change as he needs a more dynamic midfield.
And now it is believed the player is desperate to leave the club, with Palour urging Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to cough up £50million to sign the player.
"I think he would be more of a fit than Jorginho. I've always said they're (Arsenal) lacking goals from midfield. I don't think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal,” Palour told talkSPORT.
"I think there would be uproar by the Spurs fans if that happens, but he would certainly be a good fit for Arsenal.
"I'm trying to put a figure in my head to say how much he would be worth, I would say £50m.
"I certainly believe that he's got a lot of good years left in him as a player, so £50m has got to be the marker."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion are reportedly considering a move for former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor this window.
The Baggies currently sit at the base of the table with zero points after two rounds of matches since the league kicked off earlier this month.
And Slaven Bilic is hoping to give the ex-Spurs attacker one last opportunity to play in the English topflight.
Adebayor is a free agent at the moment having parted ways with Paraguay club, Olimpia over coronavirus issues as reported by SunSport.
The publication added that the forward has been keeping fit in his home in Ghana, insisting he still has plenty to offer.
