Tottenham Hotspur are set to make a January bid for MK Dons wonderkid Dele Alli, according to reports.

Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign MK Dons teenager Dele Alli, it has been reported.

The 18-year-old has been in good form for the League One side, scoring six goals in eight League One appearances as well as starring in the Dons' 4-0 demolition of Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mail, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was at Stadium MK to watch Alli play in the giant-killing League Cup game, and is planning to put a bid on the player in the January transfer window.

Alli, who is also said to be on Liverpool's and Bayern Munich's radars, signed a new three-year contract at MK Dons last week.
