Dele Alli has four possible options for next move with Besiktas spell coming to an end

Retire from football

Alli has been previously urged to quit football and may consider it if he feels that he cannot get back to the peak of his career. Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has questioned whether he should continue playing, after an underwhelming spell at Everton.

“Dele needs to answer some serious question, for himself, no one else. He has to ask: Do you want to play professional football, or are you not cut out for it?” Collymore wrote in his column for The Mirror in 2022.

“If not, don’t do that, think of conning clubs into giving you a year, based on past reputations, and drift down the ranks. Everton, to Norwich, to the Championship. If no, then get to the end of your contract, and move on with life.”
