There has been some reports which have claimed Montepellier defender and Arsenal target Benjamin Stambouli could be set to stay in France this summer
The 23-year-old has been one of his side’s most impressive performers in recent seasons, helping them to their first-ever title in back in the 2011/12 season, though they have had a difficult season this year.
Arsenal, Liverpool and AC Milan have been linked as admirers of Stambouli, though Lyon and Marseille are now believed to be joining the chase for his signature as they seek to keep him in Ligue 1.
The former France Under-21 international will surely be tempted to make the step up to a bigger club next season, though neither Lyon nor Marseille will be competing in the Champions League, which could help swing things in Arsenal or Liverpool’s favour. (SportsDirectNews)
It will be interesting to see how this plays out
