Real view Alli as a replacement for ageing midfielder Luka Modric

Alli has been absolutely sensational for the north London side since his move from League 1 side MK Dons in the summer of 2015.

The youngster has managed to bag total of 46 goals and 41 assists in 146 appearances for the Lilywhites, a fantastic record for a midfielder of his age.

The player’s best season for Pochettino’s side came in the 2016/17 campaign, with Alli managing to clock up a total of 18 goals and nine assists in the league to help the club secure a second place finish in the league.

If Madrid do come in for Alli, it may be a hard proposal for the Englishman to turn down given the Spanish giants’ pedigree.
