According to Turkey outlet Takvim, the decision has been made that will see the Englishman watch from the stands instead of on the pitch.

It personifies Alli’s recent struggles in the recent campaign, where he failed to hit the peak that he set earlier in his career.

It is only just over one year ago that the 26 year old forward departed from Tottenham to join fellow Premier League side Everton under former manager Frank Lampard, bringing an end to his seven years stint in North London.

After transferring from MK Dons, the midfielder quickly became a fan favorite, but he was ultimately released for the greater good after he failed to live up to expectations.

However, his time with the Toffees has not gone as planned, as he only made 13 appearances for the club before being sent out on loan.

The former England international hoped to resurrect his career in Turkey but has so far been unsuccessful.

He was left off the team for the victories over MKE Ankaragucu and Istanbul Basaksehir since he has only two goals in 13 league games.

As Senol Gunes replaced Valerien Ismael as Besiktas’s manager in October 2022, Alli’s playing time has decreased.

According to rumours in Turkey, Alli may never play for Besiktas again after starting only four league games under the seasoned management.

Incredibly, Dele Alli has deteriorated to this point. The English youngster gained widespread attention in May 2015 after he led his childhood club, MK Dons, to promotion from League One. As a result of his hard work, he was honored as the Football League’s Young Player of the Year.

After joining Tottenham in the summer of 2015, the 26-year-old England star immediately made waves in the English Premier League.

The midfielder won the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2016 and 2017 after scoring 32 goals in all competitions in his first two seasons at White Hart Lane.

Alli also established himself as a mainstay for England’s national team, appearing at both Euro 2016 in France and the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

In June 2019, Alli and his Spurs teammates advanced to the Champions League final, where they were defeated by Liverpool.

However, Alli’s performance suffered when Tottenham fired Mauricio Pochettino in November 2019. Pochettino’s replacement, Jose Mourinho, sought to get the most out of the player, notably telling him to raise his standards because “time flies.” Nevertheless, Mourinho was ultimately unsuccessful.

What’s next for Dele Alli?

The mysterious offensive midfielder is under contract with Everton until 2024, but if his poor play continues, it is hard to imagine him still being an Everton player by the end of the summer.
