Dele Alli of Tottenham is one of the top rated youngsters in world football right now. The rise of Alli over the last few years has been phenomenal.
The English international was a part of League 1 side MK Dons till 2015, but within the last two years at Tottenham, he has established himself as one of the most talented young players in the world. The 21-year-old has already become a key player for his club and national team.
Alli recently fired his agent Rob Segal, who was with the player since he was 15 years old. And now that the player is available as a client, the super agents of the game are set to battle it out for the coveted player.
Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola, two of the biggest agents in the world of football, are among the interested parties looking to sign up Alli.
According to The Times, Mendes and Raiola have both approached the adoptive family of Dele Alli to lure them and make their cases. The story has been been confirmed by Alli’s flatmate Harry Hickford, who is close to the Englishman, and considers him a brother.
Any super agent who manages to sign Alli as a client would surely want to make the most money, because of the huge potential of the player. A number of big clubs have been interested in the services of the Tottenham attacker, and it is expected that the player will be subject to huge transfer bids in the near future.
