According to the Daily Mail, Italian side Napoli have approached Spurs for 21-year old Algerian Midfielder Nabil Bentaleb. Bentaleb did not a regularly featured player for Spurs as both he and fellow Midfielder Ryan Mason saw their starting spots dominated by Moussa Dembele and Eric Dier.

Bentaleb has been with Spurs since 2012 but has only made 46 appearances and has yet to score for the club. Bentaleb is known for being good in the air and intercepting balls but after bad pass that led to an own goal in the first game of the season, he rarely saw the field.

Reports show that Tottenham in interested in Southhampton Midfield Victor Wanyama and PSG youngster Wilfried Kanga to replace Bentaleb who is also rumored to be on the Crystal Palace radar.

I think this deal is pretty likely. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has shown that he is willing to move on experienced and talented players if they do not match his system, (see Andros Townsend, Aaron Lennon, Soldado, etc). Poch will find his guy and move Nabil onto the next club!
