Arsenal urged to raid rivals Tottenham with £50m Dele Alli transfer bid

Tottenham star Dele Alli would be a “good fit” for north London rivals Arsenal, according to Gunners legend Ray Parlour.

Alli, 24, has been linked with a move away from Spurs in recent weeks, with speculation intensifying after he was left out of Jose Mourinho’s squad for last week’s trip to Southampton.

It is believed Paris St-Germain are eyeing up a loan move for the England international, although Mourinho has since insisted he is “convinced” he will remain at the club this summer.

Nevertheless, former Arsenal midfielder Parlour has urged his ex-club to go and sign Alli instead of Chelsea ace Jorginho – who is reportedly wanted by Mikel Arteta.

“I think [Alli] would be more of a fit than Jorginho if I’m being honest, because I’ve always said they’re lacking goals from midfield,” he said on talkSPORT.

“I don’t think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal. I think there would be uproar by the Spurs fans if that happens.

“But he would certainly be a good fit for Arsenal.”

Parlour then added: “I certainly believe that he’s got a lot of good years left in him as a player. So £50million has got to be the marker.

“One thing about Arsenal is I think they’re lacking goals from central midfield areas, so I think he could tick that box especially where he does score goals. He can get you 10 goals from midfield if he plays on a regular basis.
