Former Chelsea defender Wayne Bridge, has claimed that if he had his way, Dele Alli would not be playing for Spurs but for Chelsea. According to the former England international, Dele Alli is the closest player to Frank Lampard right now.
Lampard had a trophy-laden spell at Chelsea, and is still enjoying his post-premiership career in the MLS. But Bridge believes his replacement is not far away from Chelsea.
The former Blue says he wish he was in charge of Chelsea now, he would sign Dele. He acknowledges though that it may be a big ask as transfers between the London rivals is always complicated.
Dele Alli has been a revelation since moving from Championship side MK Dons last summer. He has been the most important player in Tottenham since he made his debut for the club. The youngster has scored and assisted many crucial goals that has place Tottenham on the cusp of winning the Premier League this past two seasons.
Ali has scored 14 goals in 28 games this season, to help Tottenham keep the pressure on league leaders, Chelsea.
