Tottenham Hotspur are open to letting Victor Wanyama leave this summer.
According to The Evening Standard, the club have slapped a £17 million asking price on the Kenya international, who is being tracked at the moment by Club Brugge.
Wanyama’s time at the club recently has been wrecked by various injuries, which have restricted him to just 47 starts since he joined.
The 28-year-old has really struggled with knee problems, and it would appear the club are ready to cash in on the former Southampton man.
It is a real shame, as Wanyama was a force in the 2016/17 season alongside Mousa Dembele in the midfield.
It is interesting to see the club ready to move the player on, especially given the struggles of Moussa Sissoko before last season.
At one point, almost all Spurs fans wouldn’t have believed Sissoko would (potentially) outstay Wanyama at the club.
Many would have laughed at the idea Spurs would be on the verge of cashing in on the dynamic Wanyama before the inconsistent Sissoko.
The Frenchman took such a long time to get going following his £30 million transfer from Newcastle United (BBC Sport), and during some times when Wanyama was injured, the Frenchman wasn’t doing enough for the team.
He then of course had an inspired 2018/19, which ended in him scooping the club’s inaugural Legends’ Player of the Season.
It really is remarkable to think about the duo’s respective trajectories over the past couple of years and one wonders if Wanyama will now actually leave as is being reported.
