The Spurs midfielder’s omission from the squad for Sunday’s impressive 5-2 win at Southampton certainly raised eyebrows, just days after Alli was left out of the north Londoners’ crucial Europa League win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
The England international midfielder has gone from one of Spurs’ main men to the latest first-team star to have been ruthlessly exiled by Mourinho.
Dele Alli has been left out of Tottenham’s last two matches and his future at Spurs is in doubt
Top players such as Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba have been pushed out into the cold by the Portuguese coach and Alli appears to be the next star facing Mourinho’s wrath.
Here, Sportsmail identifies all of Alli’s options ahead of a crucial end to the summer transfer window.
French champions Paris Saint-Germain are the club showing the most interest in Alli and could put in an offer for the attacking talent before the October 5 deadline.
A move to the French capital would be an exciting option for the 24-year-old, who faces the possibility of mixing with world-class players such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Alli’s chances of winning the first trophy of his career would be significantly enhanced as well. PSG have won seven out of the last eight Ligue 1 titles, while Thomas Tuchel’s side also lifted both domestic cups earlier this year and reached the Champions League final.

PSG would also benefit from the addition of Alli as the French giants look to bolster their options in attacking midfield.
Angel di Maria has now been shifted into a wide role, Marco Verratti has suffered from long-term injury problems, while Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye are deemed to be more defensive options.
Without the likes of Mbappe and Neymar, PSG look like a completely different side. The Ligue 1 champions lost their opening two matches of the league season when the attacking pair were isolating due to Covid-19.
While they have won their last two games since then, Tuchel requires more attacking options in his stellar side. Alli could fit the bill.

Inter Milan have also expressed a desire to bring in Alli before the deadline as they continue their rebuild under Antonio Conte.
The Serie A giants are huge admirers of Premier League players having signed the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Victor Moses and Ashley Young over the past year.
Another top player from England Inter have recently bought is ex-Spurs man Christian Eriksen, who arrived at the San Siro in January of this year.
