Despite their rivalry on the field of play, Chelsea is about to test the faithfulness of one of their London rivals.
According to online media, the Blues are lining up a world record £100 million bid for Tottenham’s Dele Alli.
Alli has been a revelation since he moved to Tottenham two seasons ago and is set for a big-money move away from the Londoners.
Tottenham considers Alli unsellable, but Antonio Conte has told the Chelsea hierarchy that he wants the England playmaker.
Alli is considered the most talented player to have come out of England in recent times and has scored 28 goals for Spurs so far.
The Blues are set to spend big this summer as they target Champions League and Premier League glory. They are set to splash about £125 million on the trio of Alex Sandro, Antonio Rudiger, and Tiémoué Bakayoko.
At 21 Alli is still keen on remaining under the tutelage of Mauricio Pochettino, as he believes he still has a lot to learn from the Argentine manager.
It would be interesting to see if Alli would risk the ire of the Spurs faithful and join their city rivals.
