Tottenham’s Dele Alli continues to be linked with Real Madrid.

This time the speculation is based on leading agent Jorge Mendes reportedly speaking to a member of Alli’s family about representing the player.

The England international’s contract with his current agent, Rob Segal, expires next year.

The Daily Mail suggest Mendes’ apparent interest in Alli means a move to Real is possible because of Mendes’ links with the Spanish club – he represents Cristiano Ronaldo and former Real boss Jose Mourinho

Alli is under contract at Tottenham until 2022 and the Mail say Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would demand a transfer fee well in excess of the £89.7m Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba.

Meanwhile, Real Betis reportedly believe they are close to a deal to sign Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere’s Arsenal contract is due to expire in the summer and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen for him to sign a new deal.

The Sun claim Betis are confident they will persuade the midfielder to move to Spain and join them.

The newspaper say Betis have made contact with Wilshere and that he is open to the move.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Arsenal will decide on the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in January.

And the Daily Star have picked up Italian outlet Calciomercato claiming that AC Milan are keen to sign Willian from Chelsea.
