How PSG could line-up with Dele Alli transfer as Tottenham star joins Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are reportedly discussing a deal to rescue Dele Alli from Tottenham.

The England midfielder, 24, has not even made the bench in the past two Spurs games having been hooked at half-time of their season opener.

Reports suggest Dele is "upset and confused" at being dropped by Jose Mourinho.

Ordered in for extra training while his team-mates beat Southampton 5-2, he will be thrown into the side for Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash against Leyton Orient.

Mourinho is said to believe that Dele does have a future at Tottenham.

But the decision may be out of his hands after talks between the star and PSG began, according to The Telegraph.

Thomas Tuchel's setup does appear ready to accommodate the former MK Dons ace.

A forward-thinking 4-3-3 formation provides the midfielders with plenty of freedom to join Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe in attack.

Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye, Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes would provide plenty of competition to Dele.

And the German coach has admitted that a new midfielder is on his agenda ahead of the October 5 transfer deadline.

Ahead of the weekend win at Nice, he said: "The priorities are clear, we need a forward, a centre-back and a midfielder.

"We need to replace the players that left, that's the challenge.

"The squad is getting smaller and smaller, and there is a risk of entering into a period of injuries and fatigue. My job is to find solutions, and to prepare the team for the next match."
