Rio Ferdinand claims Dele Alli put himself back “in the shop window” after his excellent performance in Tottenham’s win over Wolfsberger on Wednesday.
Alli scored a stunning overhead kick and provided two assists as Spurs won 4-0 on the night for an 8-1 aggregate scoreline.
Jose Mourinho claimed it was a performance that has brought the playmaker closer to a Premier League start with the England international out of contention this season.
Paris Saint-Germain reportedly came close to signing Alli in January and could reignite their interest again this summer.
Rio Ferdinand told BT Sport: “He’s been waiting for that and Dele has put himself in the shop window.”
Peter Crouch added: “What I saw from Dele today was magnificent. You can only beat what’s in front of you and I thought he was first-class and had a bit of a swagger back.
“He set-up two goals and scored an absolute worldie – you can’t ask for more really.
“I don’t know what’s going on this season but for him to have been left out of nine squads, not even making the bench.
“We know he’s got ability and tonight he’s proved that. These [Wolfsberger] aren’t great but he was magnificent.
“He was involved in everything good Spurs did.”
