Tottenham attacking midfielder, Dele Alli, has been advised to leave the club and the city of London entirely.
Former Tottenham striker, Darren Bent, warned that the England international is going ‘stale’ at the club and should consider leaving London to revive his career.
Spurs midfielder, Alli was singled out for particular criticism following their shocking 2-1 defeat to Mura in the Europa Conference League during the week.
Bent suggested a move away from London could be the best way to revitalise Alli’s career.
“I think he needs a fresh challenge somewhere else,” he told talkSPORT
“He looks to me like the world is weighing him down, and it shouldn’t do.
“Listen, he is playing at a great football club – great players, great supporters – I think he needs to go elsewhere now. I think he needs to go somewhere and refocus.
“I did it, I left Spurs. I needed to go somewhere where I could just solely focus on playing football and for me, Sunderland was the perfect landing spot.
“Ultimately, the following season I had the best season I ever had, scored 25 goals. But I needed to go somewhere where there was hardly any distractions and I could focus solely on playing football.
“I think Dele Alli is kind of in that situation where he maybe needs to get himself out of London and just focus on playing football again.”
Tottenham’s new boss, Antonio Conte, has started Alli in just one Premier League game and once in Europe – hardly enough time to make an impact.
“I think you just get to a point where you become stale in an environment. He needs to just go anywhere else and start again,” Bent added.
