The Kenyan international has established himself as one of the top enforcers in the Premier League since moving to St. Mary’s from Celtic in summer 2013, boasting a physically imposing 6 foot 2 frame.
But the defensive midfielder has been linked with a White Hart Lane move practically ever since former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino took over in north London two summers ago.
The Lilywhites reportedly saw a £20million bid rejected by Southampton last summer – as reported by Goal – and now look set to revive their interest ahead of the summer transfer window.
Mirror Football claim the south coast outfit have practically accepted Wanyama’s departure already, with the 24-year-old about to enter the final twelve months of his contract.
There is a five-year contract on the table but Wanyama appears unlikely to sign it, meaning Southampton have to sell or risk losing him for free at the end of next season.
