DELE ALLI led a triple fitness boost for Tottenham’s midfield ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League return leg at Borussia Dortmund.
Playmaker Ali is back in training after hurting his hamstring in a 2-1 win at Fulham in January.
Meanwhile, Ali’s fit-again fellow England stars Harry Winks and Eric Dier have travelled to Germany as Spurs defend a 3-0 lead gained from a magnificent second-half display three weeks ago.
Winks suffering suffered a hip injury after shining in that Wembley wonder show against the Bundesliga leaders.
And Dier has recovered from tonsillitis, having missed three games.
But the fitness tonic for Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino comes just as Real Madrid are being linked with Tottenham’s stylish Dane Christian Eriksen.
The Mirror say the La Liga giants are willing to offer Spurs their former hero Gareth Bale plus £50million for the 27-year-old.
Rumours that Manchester United target Bale is unhappy in Spain regularly leak out.
So a summer exit for the 29-year-old would surprise few people.
And, although Eriksen has been a stand-out performer this term, Winks’ tidy passing has emerged as a valuable part of the way Pochettino likes to play.
Nonetheless, the Argentinian boss needs to steady his stuttering side after their grip on third place was loosed a little further by Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Arsenal.
And sealing a place in the Champions League quarter-finals would be the perfect lift.
