According to Football Insider, West Ham United want to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama during the January transfer window.
Wanyama made 47 appearances for Tottenham during his first season at the club, but has struggled with injuries over the last 18 months.
The 27-year-old has found it difficult to secure a regular spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s first XI this term, and it is understood that he could be available at the start of 2019.
It really would be a sensational deal, but it is difficult to believe that it could occur due to the relationship between the two teams.
West Ham were not exactly shy in splashing the cash during the summer transfer window, but are seemingly ready to spend again in the January transfer window.
The West Ham fans have been offering their views on the surprise transfer report on social media, and a selection of their Twitter reaction can be seen below:

Would be amazing signing, but spurs barely ever do business with us.
