But there are concerns over Alli's sharpness from within the senior England camp, while all eight midfielders named in Southgate's previous squad are understood to be available for selection which leaves the midfielder in danger of missing out.

Alli has struggled with fitness issues since the start of the season due to a hamstring injury sustained in pre-season - and Southgate may feel the best course of action is for the midfielder to spend the international break working at Tottenham's training complex.

Walker was the surprise omission from the squad that secured two victories against Bulgaria and Kosovo last month - though Southgate stressed the door was open to the Manchester City right-back, who has been a virtual ever-present during the England boss' reign.

But Kieran Trippier has impressed England staff since his move from Spurs to Atletico Madrid while Trent Alexander-Arnold is a shoo-in to be selected.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is currently suffering with tonsillitis which could yet open the door for Walker's return. Nevertheless, the City defender's place in the squad is far from certain.
