Dele Alli scores twice for Everton, but Toffees looking to sell midfielder just six months after transfer from Tottenham to avoid potential add-on fees

    After missing a tap-in against Minnesota United, Dele Alli looked to be turning a new leaf as he netted twice for Everton on Sunday.

    Unfortunately for Alli, though, reports suggest the Toffees want rid of him, just six months on from his move to Goodison Park.

    Alli missing a sitter against MLS outfit Minnesota summed up what’s been a difficult few years for him having fallen out of favour at Tottenham and getting inconsistent game time at new club Everton.

    However, their win against Championship side Blackpool offered an opportunity for the 26-year-old to prove himself to Toffees boss Frank Lampard.

    And Alli grabbed the opportunity with both hands, netting twice to help his side secure a 4-2 win against the Seasiders.

    Alli celebrated his second goal by making a heart with his hands and directing it at the travelling Toffees faithful.

    But, whilst the midfielder will be happy to have got on the scoresheet after a lack of goals for years, reports suggest he may not be playing for Everton fans for much longer.

    According to The Sun, the Toffees want to get Alli off their books just six months on from when they signed him from Spurs.

    Spurs agreed that the Merseysiders would pay a fee of £10million should he make 20 appearances.

    In the end he only played ten, leading Everton to want to cut their losses after being underwhelmed by his impact.

    The report adds the Toffees are said to be keen to avoid any potential add-on fees given their financial position and need to cut their costs whilst also trying to avoid another relegation battle.

    Everton have already started to ease their financial woes by selling key asset Richarlison to Spurs for £60m.

    They’ve made just one addition to the squad this summer, with former Burnley defender James Tarkowski arriving on a free transfer.
