After joining Tottenham from MK Dons and being thrown right into a midfield pairing at the age of 19, Dele Alli appeared destined for stardom with Spurs. And he made good on that being involved in 63 league goals during his first three seasons and becoming an integral part of the England national team as well. 

But as managers changed, muscle injuries mounted, and Alli's focus shifted, his attacking numbers began to slide as over the next three-and-a-half years he was only involved in 26 goals. These numbers aren't particularly bad as he's spent time as a shadow striker, winger, box-to-box midfielder and a defensive midfielder but only getting 15 starts under Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Antonio Conte showed that the writing was on the wall for his career in North London. He was linked with a move to PSG or Newcastle but it was Frank Lampard who stepped in at the 11th hour to see if he can unlock Alli at Everton. 

Everton need midfielders, and they're in for a double swoop including Alli and Donny van de Beek from Manchester United to suit Lampard's preferred 4-3-3 formation.
