Report: Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli flies to New York to undergo PSG medical

PSG

Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur’s Benjamin Stambouli, subject to a medical.

As per the latest reports in Le Parisen, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Benjamin Stambouli is to fly to New York on Saturday night to undergo a Paris Saint-Germain medical after an agreement for his services was reached.

The 24-year-old midfielder became a victim of the heavy competition for places at White Hart Lane, starting just four Premier League matches last season.

As such, speculation soon arose regarding his future and French champions Paris Saint-Germain have been quick in setting about their transfer business, agreeing a £5.5 million deal with Spurs, as per Midi Libre.

While the figures involved have varied in a number of media outlets, the North Londoners are set to make a quick profit on the player they only signed last summer from Montpellier.

The official confirmation of his transfer is near, and the latest reports in Le Parisien claim Stambouli has agreed a five-year contract with PSG and is New York-bound, where he will undergo a medical on Sunday.

Do Tottenham Hotspur need midfield reinforcements?

Last summer, after bringing in Stambouli, the club had a wealth of midfield options. However, Lewis Holtby, Paulinho and Etienne Capoue have gone and now they are set to free up another space.

That leaves Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Mousa Dembele as their only recognised central midfielders from the first-team squad, suggesting that fresh faces in that particular position may be sought before the summer window closes - although Dele Alli will also come into the thoughts of Mauricio Pochettino.
