If there's one player Daniel Levy and Spurs wouldn't want to sell it's Harry Kane but coming a close second on that list is Dele Alli but the young midfielder's latest move might have the club on high alert.
Danny Rose's ill advised interview with one British newspaper led to many criticising him but it wasn't because he was suggesting he should be paid what he's worth.
Whilst the Spurs left-back might have annoyed fans, pundits and colleagues about having to search for the name of players that had signed over the years the suggestion they don't get paid enough was generally agreed with.

Of course some of us would kill for £60,000-a-year, never mind a week but, unlike Ashley Cole's crass suggestion he was about to crash his car for that offer many years ago, Rose had a point.
That's because throughout the rest of the league Spurs' players competitors are getting paid far more money than them, they're the BBC's female on screen talent to everyone else's male equivalent.
Now the club could be even more worried about what they're paying some of the league's best players with Dele Alli, as reported by the Daily Mail, looking to change agent with the view to potentially looking at a move.
Alli would certainly make a lot more money elsewhere. Image: PA
The newspaper report that the former MK Dons midfielder is currently with agent Rob Segal but wants to change agencies in an attempt to break Spurs pay structure.
At the moment the 21 year old is 'only' on £60k-a-week with Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane the only two men in Mauricio Pochettino's side to reach the £100k-a-week mark.
Even Kane's wages are far lower than the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero who he battles for top scorer. Image: PA
Any hint that Alli would want out will alert the likes of Real Madrid and PSG as well as domestic rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
Should the Spurs player manage to get a move to any of those clubs he could expect to earn closer to the £200k-a-week mark and compete with the world's best.
The player reportedly fancies a move abroad in the future and that would make transfer negotiations slightly easier too.
Spurs have a big decision to make about changing their wage structure!
