Dele Alli must buck his ideas up with £6.9m Everton fee under threat

Besiktas are due to pay Everton £6.9million if they choose to sign him at the end of his loan deal from Everton but they might not do it.

According to A Spor in Turkey, Valerien Ismael and others at Vodafone Park Arena have become frustrated with the England international’s performances.

As a result, the Black and Whites are now not at all convinced about taking up their option to sign him in June or at the earlier time of January when they can sign him for just £5.2million.

The 26-year-old has not yet played a full 90 minutes for either Everton or Besiktas this season with his only goal coming for the Turkish Super League side away at Ankaragucu in a 3-2 win.

Frank Lampard, Farhad Moshiri and Kevin Thelwell could all do with that extra financial boost that the sale of Alli would bring with further improvements to the current squad at Goodison Park desired in January.

For that to happen, however, Alli has to start bucking his ideas up and prove to himself more than anyone else that he wants to remain a professional footballer and not become one of those players who fell off the face of a cliff at a very early age.

His chances in the Premier League are all but over after he flopped on Merseyside following two turbulent years at Tottenham Hotspur previously.

Besiktas signing Alli permanently would also mean that Everton don’t need to pay as much of the instalments to Spurs for the 26-year-old, who they signed on Lampard’s first day in the job last season.

None of that will happen, though, if he continues to be so sub-par in a league where he should be one of the genuine stars and dominate games for the most part no matter who the opponent is.
