Dele Alli has reportedly been left out of the Tottenham Hotspur squad for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Lokomotiv Plovdiv amid the speculation surrounding his future.
The England international was replaced at the interval of Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Everton on the opening weekend of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.
A recent report claimed that Spurs had offered Real Madrid the chance to sign Alli as part of a deal for Gareth Bale, who is said to be closing in on a return to North London.
According to Football Insider, Alli is one of eight first-team players to be left out of the trip to Bulgaria, sparking fresh rumours surrounding his future with the summer transfer window still open.
The 24-year-old has scored 62 times and registered 55 assists in 223 appearances for Spurs since arriving from MK Dons in the summer of 2015.
The attacker struggled to make his mark during the 2019-20 campaign, though, scoring just nine times in 38 appearances, while he has also lost his place in the England squad.
