PSG rejected the opportunity to sign Dele Alli

A year after trying so hard to bring him in, PSG turned down an opportunity to bring in Spurs midfielder Dele Alli last January. 

Within days of Mauricio Pochettino's arrival on the bench in early January 2021, PSG had gone to great lengths to sign Dele Alli. The Parisian club had made no less than three different loan offers to Spurs, pressing until the last hours of the transfer window, but the London club's president, Daniel Levy, did not want to hear anything and rejected everything. 

A year later, the situation has changed a lot, and not only for Pochettino. This time it was not PSG who tried to sign an increasingly lost Dele Alli in Tottenham colours, but rather the player himself who offered himself to the Parisian team, as revealed by L'ÉQUIPE. 

The 25-year-old midfielder has even been offered to many Ligue 1 clubs, as Lyon, Marseille, Monaco, Nice, Rennes and Lille have also been offered the player; that Tottenham was willing to give up assuming a good part of the salary. 

Although the player was open to the idea of ​​joining France, none of the clubs were interested. A sign that times have changed for Dele Alli, who signed for free at Everton on the last day of the transfer window, and the 'Toffees' will only pay bonuses.
