Dele Alli: Everton midfielder in talks with Besiktas after just seven months at Goodison Park | Football news

Everton midfielder Dele Alli is in talks with Besiktas with a view to moving to the Turkish club.

The agreement can be a loan or a permanent move, depending on how the negotiations progress.

Meanwhile, Everton are close to completing the protracted move for Idrissa Gueye from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Merseyside club had already agreed with the Senegalese international for him to return to the club he left in 2019, but problems between the player and PSG held up the deal.


These have now been resolved and Gueye will complete the deal within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Alli is desperate for more playing time after mostly being used from the bench since joining Everton.

Although there was no initial transfer fee when he joined the club in January, Everton would owe Tottenham anything up to £40m if certain performance bonuses were met.

The first £10m is to be paid after Allis’s 20th Everton appearance. The club must also pay Spurs 25 percent of the money they receive.

The 26-year-old has played in both of Everton’s Premier League games so far this season, but only from the substitutes’ bench.

Since joining the club in the January transfer window, Alli has made just one start – against Arsenal on the final day of last season – and played just 13 times in total, without scoring.

Alli was praised by Frank Lampard for his second-half influence during Everton’s dramatic 3-2 win over Crystal Palace in May, which preserved the club’s Premier League status.

Lampard was asked by Sky Sports earlier this month about using the former Tottenham midfielder more regularly this season – given the absence of striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the lack of recognized striker as an option.

Alli had scored twice during a friendly win over Blackpool and was seen among some fans as someone who could act as a false nine in Calvert-Lewin’s absence.

“I hope he has an important role to play,” Lampard said of Alli’s season ahead. “He had a big impact in one half against Palace and he was very important in terms of turning the game around, but now we’re looking for consistency.

“That means training, getting fit and showing he can start games. We are now in a more stable state as a club than the intense environment we were in at the end of last season.

“Dele is here to help us on a more consistent basis and it’s in his hands to show when opportunities come, he can take them. We saw in his performance against Palace what he can do. It’s one for me and for him – we” Everyone is pulling in the same direction and I hope he can have a good season for us.

Sky Sports football journalist Ben Grounds:

“When Alli joined Everton on a two-and-a-half-year deal back in January, it was hoped that he could revive his career at Goodison Park.

“It had been felt for a while that the player needed another break from Spurs, where he had spent seven years of his career.

“Given how his stock had fallen sharply, and Everton’s precarious financial situation, it was little surprise that the potential transfer fee of £40m was structured around performance-related add-ons.

Pat Nevin says Dele Alli still has plenty of quality but questions whether he should play up front for Everton.

“It was up to Alli to perform and if he was to rekindle those early days at White Hart Lane then surely such a high fee would have been justified. That Alli, at the start of the Mauricio Pochettino era, was a £40m player.

“In the dark of the night on deadline day, Alli said Sky Sports of Lampard’s influence to convince him to move to Merseyside.

What Alli said on arrival at Everton

“I’m very excited, a little tired after the long day, but we got there in the end. I’m happy.

– I have had some good conversations with him [Lampard] already, he’s a player I admired throughout his career whenever I saw him. I’m happy to work with him, it’s very exciting, I’m sure we can do great things together.

“I just want to be happy playing football. Working with Lampard, and the great players Everton have, is a great opportunity for me to do that. I’m looking forward to going there, showing the fans what I can do and help the club as much as I can.”

“There is still a player in Dele and a move to Turkey now would feel like a resignation that his best days are behind him.

“Still only 26, the Super Lig has been treated by Premier League clubs as a scrap heap for finished footballers at clubs happy to take their inflated wages and bruised egos.

“A producer of 269 appearances in all competitions for Spurs and scored 67 goals, including 51 in the Premier League. The hope was that Lampard could spark something in him, but given Everton’s own problems, it may just have been the right player at the wrong time.

“His career stagnated in North London, but it has come to a complete halt in Liverpool.

“In more stable times for Everton, given how James Rodriguez operated in the early performances under Carlo Ancelotti in 2020, Alli could well have thrived.

“Lampard is someone who is still fighting his own battle to be accepted at this level as a Premier League manager and he can ill afford passengers in a side desperate to prove that last season’s slump was just a fluke and not something that will be repeated in his first season. full season.

“A winner of PFA Young Player of the Year awards, a Champions League final runner-up, but sadly now the poster boy of an English generation that failed to fulfill its potential.

“The hope was that a place could be found for someone with such natural ability, but the club would be right to cut their losses on the Alli experiment.

“They arrived at Everton on the same day, so it will be with a heavy heart that Lampard makes one of the first reckless calls of his Goodison tenure.”
