PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are confident they can loan Dele Alli from Tottenham for the rest of the season, according to reports.
The Spurs outcast has struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho recently but his old boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen on bringing him to his new club.
Daniel Levy rejected three Alli offers from PSG in the summer.
But the French side believe they can make a breakthrough in this month's talks now Poch is on board, according to the Telegraph.
The Argentine was confirmed as new PSG boss last week – his first job since leaving Tottenham.
And given his role in developing Alli, he is eager to work with him again.
Levy is said to be reluctant to let the Englishman leave despite him playing just four times in the Premier League this season.
With Gareth Bale and Giovani Lo Celso out injured, the North Londoners do not want to leave themselves short of attacking midfielders.
And Levy is also said to harbour a belief that Alli can recapture his best form and become a 'big asset' for Spurs once again.
However, Mourinho appears to have lost all faith in the 24-year-old and did not even bring him off the bench during his side's Carabao Cup victory over Brentford on Tuesday – even though he was allowed to make FIVE subs.

Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle recently called for showdown talks between Alli and Mourinho.
The Amazon Prime Video pundit said: “I can't see him getting in at the moment, because they're winning.
“He's not going to get in unless there's an injury or a lack of form. The lack of form goes out the window because there's a settled team there.
“He's going to have to wait for an injury, then he's got to make a big impact on Jose to play.
“I'm talking about playing week in, week out, and he needs that.
“If he feels he can't do that, he needs to communicate that to the manager, and if he sees it that way as well, a loan deal could be possible.
“It's only Jose who will know if he sees a long-term scenario for him anyway. If he doesn't, he might feel it's best to cash in.
“I could see Dele going to another club and doing really well in the right system. I don't think he suits this system that Jose's looking for.
“I think at some stage he will move on, when that will be I'm not sure. If he does stay after the window, he's got to knuckle down.
“He's got to play at his very best. The truth is, and he knows it himself, he hasn't played at his best.
“The only way he can prove that to the manager is to play and I find that door shut at the moment."
