PSG are preparing to make a bid to take Tottenham midfielder on loan in January.
And this time it looks like they may get their man, with the Premier League leaders ready to let him leave.
The French champions made a number of attempts to sign him over the summer but their approaches were rebuffed at that stage.
However, with Alli not featuring in Jose Mourinho plans, and with the Europa League group stages now over, where he could at least get some limited game time, they will now sanction his departure.
Alli wants to leave because he wants to be playing regular first-team football and still retains hopes of forcing his way back into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships next summer.
He has only made one Premier League start this season, the opening day loss to Everton, when he was substituted at half-time. On Thursday he remained on the bench as Spur beat Royal Antwerp in the Europa League.
