Dele Alli is battling for his future at Everton and may be in his way out of Goodison Park, Megasportsarena.com understands.
The 26-year-old has made just nine appearances off the bench for his new club but has yet to start a game amid a fierce relegation battle.
Although there was no initial transfer fee, Everton will owe Tottenham anything up to £40million if certain performance bonuses are met. The first £10m is due after Alli’s 20th Everton appearance.
But the midfielder may have left Goodison Park before then, so Everton would have to pay Spurs 25 per cent of any money they receive. The Toffees are reportedly looking for £20m for the England international.
Alli hasn’t scored or set up a goal during his nine appearances for Everton, with Frank Lampard – the reason the player decided to make the move – using him sparingly.
Everton sit in 16th, two points above the bottom three, ahead of the final few days of the season. They host Crystal Palace on Thursday night before heading to Arsenal on the final afternoon on Sunday.
