Wolves should be all over reportedly available Victor Wanyama

Tottenham Hotspur are open to loaning out midfielder Victor Wanyama (Sky Sports live blog, 10.33 am) – and Wolverhampton Wanderers should act.

With the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele earlier in the summer, the Kenya international’s starting prospects look slim.

£11 million signing Wanyama (BBC Sport) has struggled over the past couple of years with his fitness, and has failed to recapture the kind of form he showed in the 2016/17 season alongside Mousa Dembele.

A loan move could be ideal for the 28-year-old, with Wolves potentially a great fit.

Wanyama is a player with attributes not possessed by any of Wolves’ current options.

Leander Dendoncker is a solid holding midfield player but lacks mobility, and he will potentially also be lending a hand in central defence. Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are more deft and skilful than they are physical.

Nuno Espirito Santo arguably has need for a midfield dynamo type, and Wanyama could be an extremely shrewd move.
