In what is sure to be one of the biggest jokes of the summer transfer window, according to Gazetta dello Sport journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, Arsenal have enquired about the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli!
The rumour comes from completely out of the blue and must surely not have any substantial reasons behind it, however according to the report, Spurs would only sell the midfielder in the excess of £100 million, which in itself is almost as big a joke as Arsenal being linked in the first place.
Alli did have a fantastic first season with Spurs in all honesty and he looks like he is going to be a very good attacking midfielder for years to come, despite having a poor European Championships with England. Alli made 46 appearances across all competitions last season for Spurs, scoring 10 goals and getting 11 assists. His rise to fame from MK Dons to an England regular in the space of a year shows what a player he’s going to be, and it pains to see Spurs having such a player.
However this rumour will surely be going down with the likes of being linked with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of likelihood of happening. Of all the rumours that could be created, you’d think that it would be one that could have a little credibility and likelihood, however I suppose even if Wenger truly did enquire, then Spurs’ £100 million valuation will have put the Boss off anyway.
