Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has identified Tottenham Hotspur star midfielder Dele Alli as a summer target and will make a world-record bid for the England international, according to The Express.
The former MK Dons attacker has been a revelation since moving to White Hart Lane 18 months ago and has just scooped the Premier League Player of the Month Award.
Alli has recently signed an improved contract with Mauricio Pochettino’s side and is a crucial star in the North London team’s chances of success this season.
The 20-year-old has already been linked with big-money summer moves to the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, with speculation over his future seemingly set to continue.
City are in transition currently and Guardiola will surely be keen to revamp his squad at the end of the current season.
Spurs will surely want to hold onto Alli and reject any overtures from their Premier League rivals, with the midfielder’s asking price astronomical given the player’s young age, potential and current long-term contract at White Hart Lane.
