Report: Tottenham struggling to sell Wanyama, may have to lower asking price

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly struggling to offload midfielder Victor Wanyama and may have to lower their asking price for the player.

According to the Evening Standard, Spurs are having trouble moving the Kenya international on and could therefore drop their £9 million valuation.

Last summer Spurs wanted around £17 million for the former Southampton man, but were unable to flog him for that sum.

The club reportedly agreed a £13m deal with Club Brugge for his transfer, only for Wanyama to turn the move down.

Wanyama seemingly has no future at the club, and has made just one nine-minute cameo under Jose Mourinho.

 

The manager appears to prefer the likes of Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele in the engine room, and Giovani Lo Celso showed against Norwich City he can also operate a bit deeper.

Wanyama’s situation is a bit of a sorry one – the 28-year-old was fantastic when he first joined the club, but injury problems undoubtedly took their toll and now he seems to have been pretty much discarded.

TBR’s view – Tottenham right to accept less

Wanyama – who the Evening Standard say earns £62,000-a-week – clearly isn’t in the manager’s plans and so the club would be right to drop their asking price from £9 million.

It will be annoying for Daniel Levy to make a loss on the player (he joined for around £11 million, BBC Sport), especially with Christian Eriksen expected to go for far less than he is realistically worth, but that is to be expected given how many games he has missed through injury.

Moving him on will free up £62,000-a-week on the wages, which can be reinvested into a potential new signing.
