Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has linked Tottenham to Arsenal, stating that Dele Ali could be an important one for the North London club if they make an attempt for him.

He made this claim on a talkSport show amidst reports that Dele Ali has fallen out of favour with Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho and he might be forced to leave the club.

The speculation of Dele Ali’s rift with the former Man United boss was fuelled by the fact that he was left out of the recent matchday squads, a development that would not have happened ordinarily.

However, the Arsenal legend claims the player could be an addition for the Gunners if the chances to sign him present it, explaining that the Mikel Arteta tea lack goals from the centre-midfield, and Dele Ali would ensure that if he joins the club.

Ray Parlour added that the Tottenham man could be available for £50 million and that could be the issue for the Gunners to meet.

Although Arsenal have not registered an interest in the England international with Mikel Arteta not reported to be eyeing him this development would also lead to buying that idea.

What is unknown is if Dele Ali will truly fit into Arsenal’s style and will add some qualities to the team as claimed by Ray Parlour.
