Alli is currently on a frightening vein of form, scoring seven goals in his last four matches for Maurico Pochettino’s team.
His goal-scoring exploits have unsurprisingly alerted Europe’s elite teams and it’s looking increasingly likely that one of Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid may be temped the make a move for the England star.
And while Collymore claims he wants to see England’s top players remain in England’s top league, he also added that if Alli wanted to leave, he would drive him to whichever city he liked best.
Writing in his Mirror Column, Collymore said: “Let me be very clear about this: I want the best English players to play in England.
“But I also want our best players to go and learn from the very best in the world.”
The former Aston Villa striker added:
“And if that means Dele Alli going and playing for Bayern Munich, Real Madrid of Barcelona in the next two or three years, then I’d gladly swing by his house and drive him to whichever city he fancies.
“He could play for Bayern, Barca or Real tomorrow, and they would hone his skills.”
It’s not exactly the sort of news Tottenham fans would welcome, as Alli is a crucial part of their squad heading into the second half of the season.
However, if he keeps up his fine form then the big guns will definitely come calling sooner rather than later…
