Foot Mercato seem adamant that the deal will be completed on Friday, with a medical already been completed by the midfielder and we are just waiting for the announcements from both clubs.

The midfielder joined as a part of the ‘summer seven’ that arrived in 2013, and could be the second of that seven to leave this week following Paulinho’s departure from White Hart Lane.

Capoue has previously been linked with a move to Watford by English papers, but the French papers now seem certain that the move will go ahead, and Foot Mercato claim that Spurs will receive nine million euros from the transfer.

The holding player has struggled to break back into the first team after being dropped by manager Mauricio Pochettino towards the tail end of last year, and is now reportedly deemed surplus to requirements at Spurs, paving the way for his reported move to Watford.
