Oliver Skipp should replace Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama

Tottenham’s midfield area looks particularly strong going into the new season and it could leave manager Mauricio Pochettino with quite the dilemma.

Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and summer addition Tanguy Ndombele look the frontrunners for the central midfield position, while Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama are alternative options.

But Fanatik reports that Wanyama is attracting interest this summer from Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The 28-year-old enforcer still has two years remaining on his contract with Spurs, but he’s certainly slipped down the pecking order in recent times and injuries haven’t helped.

He is a defensive midfielder with great strength and breaks up play well, but he played just 22 senior games last season across all competitions.

Oliver Skipp would be an ideal replacement for Wanyama and would be free given he’s come through their academy.

The 18-year-old is a defensive midfielder that has impressed this summer during the pre-season victory over Juventus and is someone on the rise.

He’s had a taste of senior football with 12 games for the North London club and looks ready for more.

Skipp is extremely composed on the ball for a teenager and is a no-nonsense tackler.

The Englishman would be a great option to step up to the first-team as midfield cover and it would be an ideal way to ease him into the elite level.
