Barcelona reportedly turn their attention to signing Tottenham star

Alli

According to reports, Barcelona are considering a bid for Tottenham wonder kid Dele Alli after their bid for Marco Verratti stalled.

The 21-year-old Alli was in phenomenal form for Spurs last season, scoring 22 goals from 50 appearances for the club and won the PFA Young Player of the year award for a second consecutive season.

He has now established himself as one of the most talked about young talents in world football and Barca stars Lionel Messi and Neymar have also reportedly encouraged their club to consider signing the youngster.

New Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is hoping to recruit more players as he looks to bolster his side ahead of next season.

Thus far, he has managed to lure Nelson Semedo and re-sign Gerard Deulofeu from Everton. Verratti is said to have been a top target of the Catalan club but he is likely to cost a high fee which could put the club off a potential deal.
