Nabil Bentaleb was left out from Tottenham’s starting lineup to face Borussia Dortmund, with Mauricio Pochettino instead opting to pair Tom Carroll and Ryan Mason, despite their obvious unsuitability to the task.
You have to wonder if Bentaleb has a future at the club and if Spurs sign another midfielder to put him further down the pecking order, it could spell the end for the Algerian.
One such player who could force him out is Anderlecht’s Youri Tielemans, who has been linked with a £20m move to White Hart Lane.
The 18-year old has already made over 100 appearances for the Belgian giants and is on the radar of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
It’s claimed that Tottenham and Atletico Madrid are leading the chase and if we’re successful, Bentaleb could be the man who makes way. Watch the exciting youngster in action below.
