Dele advised to find a new club
Former Tottenham star Darren Anderton has urged Dele Alli to shake up his career to find his best form.
“I think a move away would be the best thing for both the club and the player,” said Anderton. “Dele needs to be playing football, he needs to be on the pitch
“He needs to be reminding Gareth Southgate what he’s capable of. He has gone stale. I want to see him out there scoring and creating goals. I don’t just want to see him on social media.
“Dele should be a key player for this team, he’s now at an age where he should be one of the standout stars in the Premier League.”
Zorc hits back at Haaland claims
Borussia Dortmund transfer chief Michael Zorc has admitted his surprise at Erling Haaland’s comments over his future.
The Norwegian stated on Friday that he was being “pressed” into a decision on his future, despite wanting to take his time and focus on his football.
But Zorc has now stated: “I did not expect Haaland’s comments.
“His remarks surprised us a bit. At the moment, there is no deadline, there haven’t been any talks yet. But it’s understandable, of course. You have to talk about it at some moment.”
Man United refusing to back Rangnick
Manchester United could miss out on key targets this month due to their managerial situation.

Denis Zakaria of Borussia Monchengladbach and Brighton’s Yves Bissouma are also top targets.
But it is claimed that United do not want to spend significant fees on Rangnick’s targets given he may only be in charge for this season.
Atletico find Trippier replacement
Valencia are in search of a replacement after Daniel Wass requested a move to Atletico Madrid.

Coach Jose Bordalas said last night: “I spoke to him, he told me that he has a proposal and his intention is to accept it. But I don’t decide.
“I have great confidence in him, given that he has played across the whole team, but it is the club that has to decide. He knows that it is very important here, but his idea would be to leave.”

The Red Devils boss said the Frenchman, whose future is in doubt, “didn’t want to be” at the draw with Aston Villa.
But Martial has posted on Instagram: “I will never refuse to play a match for Man United. I’ve been here for seven years and I never disrespected, and will never disrespect, the club and the fans.”
No Klopp concern over Salah contract talks
Jurgen Klopp has assured Liverpool fans that Mohamed Salah’s contract extension negotiations are continuing as expected.
“If two big companies try to come together out there usually in normal life, in business, that’s not done overnight,” he said ahead of the game against Brentford.
“A big contract, it’s not like buying a smartphone [that] you just sign one thing and it’s done.
“There are a lot of things to consider – some on the club’s side, some from the player’s side and a lot from the agent’s side. That’s the thing, nothing else.”

Fiorentina unhappy with Vlahovic
Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera detail the latest news in Arsenal’s chase of Dusan Vlahovic.
A bid of £50million plus Lucas Torreira is on the table, as first reported a week or so ago, but Fiorentina are increasingly unhappy with the striker’s stance.
Happy to sell the Serb, Fiorentina reportedly offered him a new contract with a £58m release clause in the summer, rejecting a £50m bid from Atletico Madrid in the process.
But Vlahovic does not want to renew his contract and prefers a summer departure, ideally having pushed his current club into European football.
Whether the Tuscans can recoup such a high fee in the summer, when just a year will be left on his contract, remains to be seen…
