Real Madrid are looking to raid Tottenham Hotspur for yet another midfielder – Dele Alli – this summer, according to reports in Spain.
The youngster has impressed at White Hart Lane this season helping the side to second in the table and a realistic chance of winning their first league title for 55 years.
Such has been his form though that a number of top European sides have taken notice and Real would like to steal a march on them and secure his signing this summer ahead of any potential transfer ban coming into place.
Should the 10-time Champions League winners manage to capture the signing of Alli, who is expected to be called up for England duty at this summer’s European Championship, it would be the third major signing from Spurs in recent seasons.
Luka Modric joined the 10-time Champions League winners in 2012 and was joined a year later by Gareth Bale. Both players were instrumental as Real won the Champions League and Copa del Rey in 2014 and followed those up by lifting the European Super Cup and World Club Cup.
19-year-old Alli has scored seven goals and provided six more in an impressive first full season as part of the main squad at Spurs.
