Spurs midfielder Dele Alli is convinced that he will be able to seal a move to Paris Saint-Germain this month, according to reports.

Alli has been frozen out by Mourinho this season, making only 12 appearances in all competitions, and has not started a Premier League game since the opening game of the campaign when he was replaced at half-time against Everton.

The 24-year-old, who is becoming increasingly frustrated at his plight, has been linked with a January reunion with Mauricio Pochettino at PSG.

On Friday Mourinho refused to answer questions on whether he would be prepared to sanction Alli’s exit if he could get a replacement in.

“It’s not a question that I am comfortable to answer,” he said. “Of course I would know how to answer you.

“But I am not ready to answer, I am not ready to make public my vision of the situation. I am sorry about that but I’m not going to answer.

“You are asking that question in a general way but you are, of course, speaking about Dele so the question that you are asking me is would I let Dele go without getting a player in exchange and I’m not going to answer that question.”

However, The Sun claims that Alli is ‘confident of sealing a loan move’ to PSG in January and that his ‘departure could even lead to a shock return to the club for Christian Eriksen’.

French newspaper Le Parisien (via Sport Witness) back up reports of interest from PSG by saying that the England international has become their ‘number one target’.

When Pochettino took the job at the Parc des Princes he ‘immediately’ brought up Alli’s name as a possible transfer target.

The French publication add that there are hurdles to jump with a loan move understood to be ‘unthinkable’ and that Spurs want at least a €50m fee for a permanent move.
