The Anfield side will fork out £9m for the 18 year old and are set to beat Arsenal and Tottenham to the capture of the midfielder dubbed the ‘Next Steven Gerrard‘.
Liverpool will pay the fee up front in January and then look to loan Alli back to the League One side until the end of the season, a deal that may well suit the MK Dons as they seek to secure promotion to the Championship.
The teenager is considered one of the hottest prospects in English football and Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to secure a deal to bring in the youngster knowing that a host of sides would have been alerted by Alli’s talents following his role in his side’s 4-0 win over Man United last month.
Alli will have seen Raheem Sterling thrive at Liverpool and the summer captures of Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi are further evidence of the Merseyside club’s push to plan for a bright future.
Though Alli turned 18 less than six months ago he has already racked up 56 appearances for the MK Dons, netting 14 goals in the process.
