Tottenham in talks over renegotiating fee for £100k-a-week star

Everton are in discussions with Tottenham after setting their sights on renegotiating a £10million appearance clause which was written into the deal that took Dele Alli to Goodison Park, according to the Telegraph, as the creative midfielder looks to get his career back on track.

The report suggests the Toffees are hoping to restructure the agreement as they would be due to pay an eight-figure sum if the 37-cap England international, whose £100,000-per-week contract is due to expire next summer, makes another seven appearances.

It comes after A View From The Bullens podcast presenter Benj Winstanley recently told GIVEMESPORT that Everton cannot afford to pay a fee for Dele due to their precarious financial situation, meaning he is currently facing up to the prospect of being unable to break into boss Sean Dyche’s plans.

The 27-year-old headed to Merseyside in a deal which would see the Toffees fork out £10million after making 20 appearances, while the deal could rise to £30million if team and individual-related add-ons are triggered during his time on the club’s books.

Dele remains a favourite within the Tottenham fanbase, having scored 67 goals and provided a further 61 assists for his teammates over the course of a 269-game career in north London.
