Victor Wanyama is set for talks over his Tottenham Hotspur future as they close in on the signing of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, per Football Insider.
The report claims that Spurs are in advanced talks with the France international as they look to reinforce a squad that reached the Champions League final and finished fourth in the Premier League.
However, such a deal could throw the Kenya international’s future into doubt, with Ndombele likely to occupy a central midfield position under Mauricio Pochettino.
And Football Insider claim that Wanyama will seek talks with his manager over his plans for the future.
Indeed, the likes of Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier all appear to be ahead of Wanyama in the pecking order, even before the looming acquisition of Ndombele.

Wanyama is clearly a lieutenant of Pochettino, as he has been signed twice by the Argentine.
Indeed, he brought the midfielder to Southampton before again signing him at Spurs but it simply hasn’t worked out for him.
But, after a sensational debut season in north London, he has struggled with injury and has seen his playing time significantly reduced.
He made a total of four starts in the Premier League and he simply can’t be trusted to play for any length of time.
Pochettino warned of a “painful” rebuild this summer and shipping out the defensive midfielder may be a key part of that after all his injury woes.
