The 21-year-old’s current Tottenham contract runs until 2022 but initial talks have been held over another new deal that Spurs hope he will sign before he potentially switches to Mendes in 2018.
A number of top domestic football agencies, including Stellar, Base Soccer and Unique, have been interested in representing England regular Alli.
Alli’s long-term close friend Harry Hickford, who plays for League Two side Forest Green Rovers, and sports lawyer Ian Lynam are understood to be handling his negotiations.
Gestifute also represent Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and a host of top players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Manchester City players Nicolas Otamendi, Bernardo Silva and Ederson.
