Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama has been linked with a move to Belgian side Club Brugge this week. Voetbal Primeur reported that Belgian football pundit, and former Sheffield Wednesday striker, Gilles De Bilde, told VTM that The Belgian side are looking into signing the Kenyan.
He would be a replacement for countryman Marvelous Nakamba, who joined Aston Villa earlier in the summer.
Brugge’s chances of signing the player will only be improved if they can secure qualification to the group stages of the Champions League. They defeated Austrian side LASK Linz 1-0 away from home last night to help them move closer to that goal.
Het Nieuwsblad has now commented on the possible interest in the Tottenham player. They state that ‘no one at Club Brugge wants to comment on that rumour’ although the club are known to be after a player of Wanyama’s type. Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey and Stoke City’s Gianelli Imbula are also reported targets.
A deal would certainly make sense for all parties involved. It is clear Wanyama has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham and has previously played in Belgium with Beerschot Antwerpen. Brugge could offer him Champions League football and regular football.
With the club flush in cash following the sales of Wesley Moraes and Nakamba, a deal could certainly be on the cards.
The fact nobody is prepared to shoot down the rumour might just hint that there is interest in the Tottenham outcast from the Belgian side.
