Following an injury setback, Dele Alli might “never put on an Everton shirt again.”

Everton midfielder Dele Alli has been facing challenges during his time at Goodison Park, leading journalist Dean Jones to speculate on his future in football.

Alli joined Everton in January 2022 for a potential fee of £40 million, mostly tied to performance-related add-ons.

However, the 27-year-old has only appeared 13 times for the club and has not played this season under manager Sean Dyche due to injury.

Alli’s difficulties extend beyond the pitch, as he has openly discussed his mental health struggles, including a stint in rehab for a sleeping pill addiction.

Reports suggested Everton sought to renegotiate his transfer terms with Tottenham after these revelations, as they face a significant payment if Alli plays seven more games.

In January, Alli suffered another setback with a groin injury requiring surgery, casting doubt on his return timeline. With his contract expiring at the end of the season and his limited impact, it’s unlikely Everton will offer him a new deal.

Jones has expressed uncertainty about Alli’s future, questioning whether he will play for Everton again or even for any club.

With no timetable for his recovery, there’s speculation about a potential retirement.

Meanwhile, Manchester United is reportedly eyeing Everton’s promising talent Jarrad Branthwaite as part of their revamped transfer strategy focusing on data and young players.

Branthwaite’s strong performances have attracted attention, and Everton’s financial situation may force them to consider selling him for a significant fee.
