The 25 year old has struggled for form since his £10m move from Toulouse to North London and boss Tim Sherwood appears ready to consider offers for the French international barely six months since he moved to White Hart Lane.

Sherwood has preferred to use youngster Nabil Bentaleb in recent weeks and Capoue has started just six Premier League fixtures this season and one imagines a decent offer from Rafa Benitez would be accepted.

Napoli are said to be in discussions with Tottenham though a fee is yet to be agreed with Sherwood questioning Capoue’s attitude.

Newly appointed boss Sherwood may well be keen to put his stamp on the squad he inherited from Andre Villas-Boas though it’s likely chairman Daniel Levy would insist players were sold before additions could be brought in given the £100m+ spent on new signings over the summer.
