Benjamin Stambouli close to completing Watford move

stambouli-tottenham-marseille-2-juin-680x447The Watford Observer understands Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli is close to completing a move to Watford.

Etienne Capoue left Spurs last week to switch to the fellow Londoners, and now it seems Frenchman Stambouli could be the next to exit the club.

The Observer understand a bid for the midfielder has been accepted by Tottenham, which now leaves formalities to complete for the move to go through.

Stambouli joined the North Londoners from Montpellier last summer, completing a move on the final day of the window in typical Spurs fashion. Despite a mixed first season, many fans thought the Frenchman had some promise.

Stambouli would join the likes of Paulinho, Holtby and Capoue to exit Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, which could potentially fuel a move for Morgan Schneiderlin of Southampton.

    Well, we desperately need a deep lying playmaker, and Schneiderlin fits the bill. He could prove a far better buy for Spurs than United, and it could prove a far better option for the player himself. He’d slot right into a dynamic ambitious team as one of the final parts of their jigsaw. At United, they don’t even seem to have a jigsaw, let alone final pieces slotting in, so I think it would all be slightly ‘bitty’ for him, with huge egos competing for places.
    Schneiderlin signing would leave Tottenham with just one good left winger to obtain, and a support striker.

  2. Another good move if confirmed. Stambouli’s too slow to play in Pochettino’s system.
