Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Stambouli set for exit this week

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Spurs midfielder Benjamin Stambouli is expected to complete a move to Watford this week.

The former Montpellier player has struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane ever since a move from Ligue One.

He’ll become the second player to link up with Watford, joining Etienne Capoue who has already made the switch.

The Metro claims Tottenham are attempting to close out the signing of striker Fernando Llorente.

The paper claims Spurs have made a bid in the region of £11 million for the player, as they look for a striker to come in and revitalise their squad.

The Metro suggests that Llorente is open to a move because he will be third choice at Juventus if he stays there for the new season.

Etienne Capoue has been quoted by the Daily Star offering up a suggestion as to why he struggled to find his best form at Spurs.

As mentioned above, the holding midfielder has already linked up with Premier League new boys Watford ahead of the new season.

He blames his lack of impact at Tottenham as due to the managerial merry go round at the club.

“At Tottenham, it was a difficult situation because in two years we changed the manager three times, and I wasn't in the plans for two coaches,” he said.
