Arsene Wenger: I scouted this Tottenham star

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal were closely watching, Tottenham’s sensational midfielder, Dele Alli. 

Arsene Wenger will take charge of his 50th north London Derby on Sunday and arguably one of the biggest in recent memory. Ahead of Sunday’s derby, Wenger has admitted that Arsenal were keeping close tabs on Alli, adding him to the list of nearly Arsenal players such as Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, N’Golo Kante and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 

“We watched him many, many times because we watched Milton Keynes a lot, he played at Milton Keynes. It’s down the road from here.”

“You have to say that he has done extremely well, and he has developed very well into a very complete player. He is dangerous and scores goals – I think he’s scored 16 or 17 goals this year, so it’s absolutely marvellous at his age. They’ve done well to buy him and give him a chance. They deserve credit for that.”
