Barcelona are set to switch their attentions to Tottenham star Dele Alli after missing out on Marco Verratti, reports have claimed.

Barca switch focus to Alli

Barca have been chasing the Paris Saint-Germain star all summer, but a move looks unlikely after the French outfit knocked back their bids, while Verratti is unwilling to rock the boat and push for a move.

It means the Catalan giants will look elsewhere, and reports are rife suggesting they will make an approach for Alli, who is also high on their list of targets this summer.

Last week both Lionel Messi and Neymar told Barca boss Ernesto Valverde to add the England international to his squad, and the Spanish press are reporting that a bid may be imminent.

Tottenham have just sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50million, but boss Mauricio Pochettino does not want to lose any other star players and all bids for Alli are likely to be knocked back.
