According to Sport, Alli is being monitored by Barca's top brass as they believe he would slot into the team.

Barca believe Alli would be a brilliant fit at the Camp Nou, having grown frustrated in their pursuit of Coutinho.

Tottenham have told both Barcelona and Real Madrid that the England midfielder, 21, is not for sale - even for £150million.

Alli has been an integral member of Spur's team that has competed for the Premier League title in the past two seasons, and he has scored three goals in eight appearances for Spurs this season.

The former Mk Dons' man signed a new six-year deal with the North London club last September and takes home around £50,000 a week.

Alli is said to be considering a change of agent, with big-name representatives like Mino Raiola and Jorge Mendes vying for his business.

The two agents have reportedly made it clear to Alli that they would be able to pave way for him to make a massive move in the future, with Barcelona, Madrid and Manchester United all mentioned.

Bleacher Report's Dean Jones reported recently that some of the biggest names in world football are taking a look at Alli:
