According to the Scottish Sun, Brugge have offered Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama a five-year contract worth £65,000-a-week. If Wanyama agrees to the terms, then his £13.5 million departure from north London will take a step closer to completion.
It’s certainly an impressive offer from the Belgian outfit, who are showing a great deal of ambition with the deal. The 28-year-old’s signature would be a major coup for them.
The Kenyan midfielder appears to be surplus to requirements at Spurs. He hasn’t made an appearance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side yet this season, and only featured 22 times in all competitions last season. The likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp have overtaken Wanyama in the pecking order and forced him out of the manager’s plans.
£13.5 million would be a fine fee for Spurs to receive for the unwanted midfielder. The move also represents a good opportunity for Wanyama to get his career back on track. The 52-cap Kenya international has not been a regular starter since a 2017 injury derailed his progress at Spurs. At this stage in his career, Wanyama needs to be playing regularly.
Wanyama’s exit would certainly be good news for Oliver Skipp, as he would face less competition for playing opportunities.
