The London Evening Standard has given an update regarding the current situation of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Benjamin Stambouli.
The Frenchman only signed for Spurs last summer after impressing for Montpellier, but he has failed to live up to expectations thus far, struggling for game-time at White Hart Lane.
That has led to claims he could be on his way and the Standard has given an update regarding Paris Saint-Germain’s alleged interest.
The latest claim is that Stambouli has his heart set on a return to France and as a result he is delaying completing a proposed move to Watford.
For a while it looked as though the newly-promoted Hornets would be signing two Tottenham midfielders, having already brought Etienne Capoue to the club, but it seems PSG have now made their move at the death.
That said, the latest report claims PSG have not yet agreed a fee for Stambouli and that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will not accept anything less than the £5.5million Watford were allegedly prepared to pay.
With Yohan Cabaye recently signing for Crystal Palace, the money is not believed to be an issue, and with PSG able to offer more wages and Champions League participation, it seems a no-brainer if Stambouli really does have the choice.
After just 25 appearances for Tottenham, a player who seemed like a savvy addition when he first arrived could be waving goodbye all too soon.
