ARSENAL should make a shock move to prise Dele Alli away from rivals Tottenham, club legend Ray Parlour has suggested.
The ex-Gunner believes his former employers would have to fork out £50million to sign the England international, who has been linked with a move away.
Amid a reported fallout with Jose Mourinho, the Special One urged the 24-year-old to 'perform' in the club's Europa League third round qualifying tie against KF Shkendija on Thursday.

But he was removed after an hour after failing to impress in the win over the North Macedonian outfit while the score was at 1-1,
Parlour reckons Arsenal should consider a move for Alli as he would bring goals from midfield.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Parlour said: "I think he would be more of a fit than Jorginho.
“I've always said they're (Arsenal) lacking goals from midfield. I don't think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal.
"I think there would be uproar by the Spurs fans if that happens, but he would certainly be a good fit for Arsenal.
"I'm trying to put a figure in my head to say how much he would be worth, I would say £50m.
"I certainly believe that he's got a lot of good years left in him as a player, so £50m has got to be the marker.
"One thing about Arsenal is I think they're lacking goals from central midfield areas, so I think he could tick that box especially.

"He does score goals, he can get you ten goals from midfield if he plays on a regular basis, whether he can get more under (Mikel) Arteta I don't know."
Commenting on how Arsenal fans would feel about the club signing Alli, Parlour added: "I think they would be pretty happy because you're getting a quality player off your rivals.
"If he started playing week in, week out, started putting the performances like we saw when he joined Spurs, then I'm sure they'd be delighted."
