The 26-year-old Dele Alli is about to be pushed to the Turkish league by Everton on loan from Besiktas. In 2022, the former England international will make just 13 appearances for Everton under manager Frank Lampard.
Tottenham have agreed to let Alli join Everton without making money. If Alli plays 20 games in four years, Antonio Conte’s side will get 10 million euros. The highest amount Tottenham can get from Everton is 40 million euros. However, given Alli’s imminent departure from Everton, that is unlikely.
In February, head coach Frank Lampard stood up to protect Ali. “I don’t care what car he drives or what he wears. As long as I have a player who comes to training on time every day and wants to improve every day,” the former Chelsea player said. However, Ali’s performance on the pitch was a big disappointment.
Before arriving at Everton, Alli also failed to conquer difficult coaches such as Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte at Tottenham. The 26-year-old midfielder has been in steady decline, with a lack of seriousness in both training and life.
In February 2021, British media revealed that Ali publicly criticized Mourinho’s tactics. The former England player said Spurs lacked breakthroughs, focusing only on long balls and poor defence.
Alli sparked a frenzy in English football when he joined Tottenham from MK Dons in 2015. Head coach Mauricio Pochettino has compared Alli to two legends, Diego Maradona and Ronaldinho, in terms of talent and fan-favorites.
In May 2018, Alli was valued at 100 million euros by Transfermarkt, making him one of the top midfielders in the Premier League. At the World Cup held in the same year, Ali made a huge contribution to helping England reach the semi-finals.
Commentator Graeme Souness on Sky Sports: “He’s a mysterious case, I think Alli is destined to be a top player.”
Ali is one of the players hyped by the British media. After joining Besiktas, the midfielder’s career is about to turn a new page. The 26-year-old Ali has a chance to regain his form as long as he focuses on football.
What is there to wait for in the 2022/23 Premier League season? The Premier League is expected to continue to create drama amid expensive rookie appearances and intense competition for the title.
