The Algerian international struggled with injuries last season.

Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to sell Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb for as little as €10 million (£8.25 million) this summer, as his future at White Hart Lane looks increasingly up in the air.

The report from Le Buteur claims that Spurs are willing to sell at this cut-price fee, with Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain previously linked with an interest in the player.

Bentaleb struggled for form and fitness last season and it appears Mauricio Pochettino is not prepared to wait on him to find either.

The 21-year-old played just 11 times for Spurs last season and did not feature after February because of continued injury problems.

The recent acquisition of Victor Wanyama from Southampton certainly did not help matters, with the Kenyan set to become a first-team regular at White Hart Lane and pushing Bentaleb further down the Spurs pecking order.

Bentaleb had previously looked a star in the making for Tottenham and that, combined with his age, could have seen Spurs demand much more for the player – with the £8.25 million fee certainly appearing to be below his market value.

So it will be interesting to see how much Spurs recoup on Bentaleb if he does move on this summer.
