The Belgian has established himself as a key part of Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield over the past two seasons but has been held back by frequent injury problems.
Despite competition from the likes of Harry Kane,Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld, however, Alli named Dembele as the most gifted player at White Hart Lane.
“In my opinion, Dembele [is the best],” Alli told Soccer AM.
“He’s very good – his feet are unbelievable. He’s so big as well but he just shifts his body so easily. I don’t know how he does it.”
Alli also revealed that Dembele is the only player who can challenge him as the king of the nutmeg at Spurs.
“I’d have to say myself, or, Mousa Dembele as well,” he added when asked who performed the skill best.
“His is different – I do it in the actual training and stuff. He just does it where he’ll call someone out one-to-one and say if you nutmeg someone, there’s a forfeit or something. He’s really good at that.”
