Tottenham’s Dele Alli tipped for extraordinary £50m transfer to rivals Arsenal

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged his former club to make a stunning bid to sign Dele Alli from their bitter rivals Tottenham this summer.

Alli has been touted with a move away from Spurs after he was left out of the squad from the team that beat Southampton 5-2 last weekend, and he has been linked with the likes of PSG.

The Gunners are known to be keen on adding another creative player to their midfield, and speaking on talkSPORT Parlour suggested Alli could fit the role, although he did admit a deal would be hard to do.

"I’ve always said they ( Arsenal ) are lacking goals from midfield," Parlour said. "I don’t think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal, I think there would be uproar from the Spurs fans if that happened.

"He would certainly be a good fit. I’m trying to think what he would be worth. I would say £50m has got to be the marker.

"One thing about Arsenal, I think they are lacking goals from central midfield areas, so he could tick that box. He does score goals, he will probably get you 10 from midfield if he plays on a regular basis."

Parlour believes Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta could be the man to get the best out of Alli, whose form has been up-and-down over the past few seasons.

"Whether he could get more goals under Arteta, I don’t know," Parlour added. "What he has done with the other players, certainly they are responding to Arteta.
