Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s priority is to sell Dele Alli in January.
The Telegraph says Spurs boss Antonio Conte has consented to Alli’s departure in January.
Levy wants a fee for the midfielder, whose last England cap came in 2019.
However, a loan with an option or obligation to buy could be accepted if a buyer cannot be found.
Conte promised he would give Alli a chance to prove he should have a more regular spot in the Tottenham side following his appointment last month.
However, the former MK Dons ace has seemingly failed to impress the Italian enough.
