Many Tottenham fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reactions. While a majority of the fans are relieved that Spurs are not interested in him, there are others who feel that Lingard won’t be a bad signing for the club.
Alli has struggled to make an impact at Spurs and probably a loan move away from the club will be good for his confidence.
However, Football London claims there are many within the club who do not want to see Alli leave the club, as they feel the England midfielder only needs to get his confidence back to return to his old best.
Lingard has made just three appearances in all competitions this season, and he is yet to play in the Premier League. While Lingard did well under Mourinho, it seems highly unlikely that Spurs will move for him this month.
