Real Madrid have made the signing of Dele Alli a priority for next summer, according to Spanish sports newspaper AS.
Early this month, Spanish press revealed Los Blancos were eyeing the 19-year-old pearl, who has made a big impression in the Premier League this season.
Alli’s recent performances seem to have convinced Los Merengues, who are ready to launch a bid for the English midfielder, AS has reported.
The 19-year-old made his debut with the Spurs last August, and since them has become one of the leaders of the team, scoring seven goals in 42 appearances. Thanks to his good performances, Tottenham sit second in the table and have a realistic chance of winning their first league title for 55 years.
Spurs are not going to let Alli go easily, since he is one of the most promising young English players. Florentino Perez will have to make a big offer if he really wants to see the midfielder at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.
Alli could be the third world-class star that moves from Tottenham to Real Madrid, following Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.
