European Outfit Confident Of Landing Tottenham Midfielder: Should Spurs Let Him Leave?

According to HNL, Club Brugge are the frontrunners in the pursuit of Victor Wanyama this summer. The Belgian outfit are reportedly making “steady progress”, although the midfielder’s agent is currently evaluating other options as well. From Wanyama’s perspective, a move to Brugge before the end of the ongoing transfer window is 70% likely to happen.

Wanyama’s miserable spell at Tottenham

Wanyama initially moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2016, in a €14 million move from Southampton. He was coming on the back of an excellent season with the Saints during the 2015/16 campaign. A move to Spurs meant he had the opportunity to reunite with Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine mastermind had played a key role behind his integration to the Southampton first-team.

However, Wanyama has struggled to make a notable impact in north London. Even though he was an ever-present figure during his debut season at the club, making 36 league appearances, he slowly lost his place to Eric Dier in the starting lineup.

In fact, the Kenyan international has mustered just over 1,000 minutes of league football since the 2016/17 campaign. This is mainly due to his injury problems as the midfielder had struggled with a cartilage problem in 2017 as well as a knee injury in 2018.

Tottenham’s stacked midfield department

It’s quite incredible how one transfer window can change everything. Last season, Tottenham were struggling with their lack of depth in the midfield department. This time, however, they arguably have the strongest midfield unit in the Premier League, largely thanks to the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele.

The Frenchman has started the season on a positive note and is expected to become a vital part of the Spurs midfield in the years to come. But, aside from him, Harry Winks has also improved his game while Moussa Sissoko’s emergence during the second half of last season has made him an attractive first-team option for Pochettino this season.

Additionally, the Lilywhites boast the services of Dier as well as the young Oliver Skipp. Therefore, it’s unlikely Wanyama will have any future at Spurs anytime soon, and a move away from north London could be the most logical choice. Brugge, in that regard, could be an ideal destination as the 28-year-old looks to revive his career this season.
