According to Football Insider, Everton has reportedly made Tottenham Hotspur a fresh offer for Dele Alli in an attempt to get the North London team to waive the midfielder’s £10 million contract clause.
Since moving to Goodison Park nearly two years ago, Dele has made 13 appearances for Everton. It is believed that the contract includes a number of performance-related payments.
One of them states that should the former England international make 20 appearances for the team, the Toffees will owe Spurs £10 million.
Everton may reopen negotiations with Tottenham to modify the terms of the agreement, according to remarks made by Sean Dyche back in September (Liverpool Echo).
The former Tottenham player has been sidelined since the summer due to a muscle tear. The Telegraph revealed a few days ago that the player has made some inauspicious progress toward recovery, and Dyche intends to reintegrate the 27-year-old into the team.
The source also stated that Kevin Thelwell, the director of football at Everton, has already contacted Tottenham in an attempt to rework the agreement.
Everton make new offer to Spurs for Dele Alli fee
Based on the most recent information provided by Football Insider, it appears that the Toffees have made Spurs a new offer for the attacking midfield player.
The Merseyside club is reportedly “offering Tottenham a seven-figure sum,” but the report doesn’t specify how much the bid is worth.
If Spurs choose not to restructure the deal, it is evident that Everton will not play Dele seven more times because they will not want to spend £10 million on the former MK Dons player.
In order for the midfield player to continue with his career, it would seem reasonable to assume that both clubs will reach a new agreement as soon as possible.
Chelsea announce huge departure ahead of Tottenham that impacts three players
Long-serving academy coach leaving Chelsea will have a significant impact on those who are not affiliated with the team.
Chelsea has announced that technical coach Andy Myers, a loan player, has left the team to become a member of Joe Edwards’ backroom staff at Millwall. On Monday, Edwards—who played a significant part in Frank Lampard’s coaching staff at Stamford Bridge—was officially named the new manager of the Lions.
After more than ten years of involvement at the Blues in various capacities, Myers has now left the team to follow his former colleague out of the club.After going through the academy as a player in the 1990s, he made his first appearance for the first team in 1991 and went on to play in more than 100 games.
After that, the fifty-year-old relocated to Bradford, then lived in Brentford and Colchester before retiring in 2005. In 2012, he became part of Cobham’s youth setup as assistant manager for the Under-21 team. The following year, he returned to Vitesse Arnhem, which at the time served as a productive training ground for young players.
In addition to serving as part of Lampard’s coaching staff earlier this year during his temporary stint in charge, he held the positions of assistant manager of the Under-23 team, manager of the Under-18s, and manager of the Under-23s. He moved again, this time to take on a new position managing loan developments last summer.
Myers assisted in coaching Matt Miazga, Nathan, Lewis Baker, and Mukhtar Ali when he was in Holland six years ago. All of these players joined the team on loan to gain senior experience. Before making a breakthrough at Derby County in 2017–18, Mason Mount also spent a year in the Eredivisie.
Chelsea’s loan program is still extensive, but it is now less comprehensive, and there is a cap on loans made abroad. Because of this, there are comparatively fewer names in the loan army to track this season, but the names that are currently out of the club may be more well-known than ever.
Myers would have been in charge of monitoring some of the most talented young players, such as Omari Hutchinson at Ipswich, Harvey Vale at Bristol Rovers, and Cesare Casadei at Leicester.In order to gain Mauricio Pochettino’s attention, the three of them earned senior moves in the summer.
With the youngest team in the Premier League, his team will be playing against Tottenham on Monday, which could inspire hope for those who are currently on loan. Although Lewis Hall is currently on loan, it is anticipated that he will join Newcastle permanently after the upcoming season. Andrey Santos is having trouble getting minutes at Nottingham Forest in the meantime.
While David Datro Fofana caused himself some trouble at Union Berlin last month by expressing his annoyance at being substituted, Gabriel Slonina is also not enjoying his stay in Belgium.While Diego Moreira plays for a dysfunctional Lyon team in France, Angelo Gabriel, another right winger, is enjoying men’s football at RC Strasbourg, a club owned by BlueCo.
Three players who have no future at Chelsea—Hakim Ziyech, Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Romelu Lukaku—could not be sold during the summer. All of them will now probably be impacted by Myers’ departure in one way or another, but the senior trio who are expected to move on may be the ones who will be most affected.
