Re: my post Jakey, this is what I said.
Just looking at the L’Equipe list, here are the players that you could play in a tactical deployment like Alli’s and see them possibly even flourish more (we have to remember, for a footballer, in terms of stats and freedom, playing as a shadow striker is the most privileged position; it’s much more common to see 10s that can’t play as 9s or as 7s or whose game is limited in that position–think Arshavin, Özil–than it is to see the other way around):
¿Kai Havertz? (don’t know enough of him to know if he could play as a 10 or as an advanced 8 in a tweaked system)
That’s just going to 25 on the list. Now, if you ask, which of those first 25 is a real midfield player, you’re left with:
**on the first list, if you wanted to really stretch it you might even include people like Dolberg, Werner, and Rashford, who can play in two striker systems, which is again, just a small tactical switch from Tottenham’s Kane-Alli combo.
