Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to pull out of negotiations to sign Dele Alli on a season-long loan.
The Tottenham midfielder was left out of Spurs’ squad as they beat Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
He had been due to feature against Leyton Orient in the Carabao Cup before the match was called off following numerous positive coronavirus tests at Brisbane Road.
According to The Telegraph, the Parisians believe the financial terms to land Alli on an agreement for the rest of the campaign are proving too difficult.
It now seems likely the 24-year-old, who moved to Spurs from MK Dons in 2015, will now stay at the club beyond the summer transfer window.

Alli has travelled with Tottenham to Macedonia for their Europa League qualifier against Shkendija this evening.
When asked whether the England star will remain at Spurs, boss Jose Mourinho said: “I believe (he will). I can even say that I’m convinced that he will be.
“There is a tendency now when a player performs or the player doesn’t perform, to give responsibilities on coaches, some because they gave him the right love, some because they gave him the right stick.
“I always feel that 99 per cent of the responsibility is the player. I have one per cent.
“Me and my staff and the people that work with the players every day, we have one per cent of the responsibility. It is 99 per cent that belongs to them.”
Alli has played 223 times for Tottenham since making the switch from MK Dons, scoring 62 goals.
He is yet to claim any silverware in north London but did help Spurs to the 2018-19 Champions League final, where they were beaten by Liverpool.
