According to reports in The Mirror last week, Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to cash in on midfielder Victor Wanyama, rated at £27m by Transfermarkt, this summer as Mauricio Pochettino looks to move some of his fringe players on to boost his budget for new signings.
Despite being something of a regular in the starting XI following his move from Southampton in 2016, the Kenya international has struggled to break back into the side following an injury that kept him on the sidelines from the end of August until the start of 2018.
Now it seems as though the north London outfit are ready to sacrifice him, and he could potentially solve a problem position for Liverpool.
The Reds don’t look to be too far away from the perfect package in terms of personnel right now, although their lack of a strong, defensive midfielder who can shield the back four is perhaps one of their main weaknesses.
With Emre Can likely to be on his way out when his contract expires at the end of the season, and Jordan Henderson not for right for the role in certain games, midfield enforcer Wanyama could be the answer to their problems.
We asked Liverpool fans to vote on our poll to see whether they would like their club to move for the African star this summer, and 64% would be keen for Jurgen Klopp to wrap up a deal.
With Naby Keita already on his way from RB Leipzig, it will be interesting to see whether the German boss feels that he needs another body in the midfield, or not.
