Liverpool are poised to make a bid for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly looking to partner the player with new singing James Milner, as the club look to rebuild the midfield severely weakened by Steven Gerrard’s departure.

The 20-year-old who had a strong breakthrough season with Spurs could be available for around £10 million and is thought to be frustrated at White Hart Lane due to lengthy negotiations over a new contract.

Forming a solid partnership with Ryan Mason, the Algerian has interested a number of Europe’s top clubs with PSG, Juventus and their North London rivals Arsenal all monitoring the player.

Bentaleb is thought to want to stay with Spurs but further delays over contract talks could push the talented youngster away, especially with the promise of Champions League football that many of his suitors can offer.

In an interview about his future, he told The Telegraph: “I give everything on the pitch. I’ve been working really hard and it’s normal for me to want to get rewarded. We’ve been negotiating for nearly nine months now, since September, and it’s getting really long and, of course, I’m getting a little bit tired of it.

“But I still work hard. It doesn’t change how hard I work. I will still be the same person. But sometimes it is annoying when you don’t feel treated as you should be. This season was a really good season for me and I’ve had some interest from big clubs, from Champions League clubs. I’m really flattered.”

The news follows a weekend of differing fortunes for the two sides. Liverpool made steps towards stability as Rodgers was given the green light to begin his summer business whilst Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has cast doubt over his future saying he wants Champions League football.
