The Spurs midfielder is the target of more than one Chinese Super League side, who would give the 20-year-old an astonishing weekly wage to tempt him to move to Asia

A number of Chinese clubs are willing to offer Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli $1 million a week to move to the Chinese Super League, according to ESPN FC.

The 20-year-old became the third fastest player to reach 20 Premier League goals as he helped Spurs defeat Chelsea 2-0 on Wednesday, and clubs in China are willing to splash out a yearly salary of $52m (£42.3m) to tempt him to leave the Premier League.

Alli would also command a large transfer fee, with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claiming that he is worth at least £50 million.

“Yes [he is a £50m player], why not? Today Dele Alli is showing a quality, a talent that it’s difficult to find in Europe at 20 years old,” Pochettino told reporters.

“There’s no doubt he is and will be one of the best players in England in the next 10, 12 years. And England represents Europe, and maybe the world too.”
