LAZY FAN EXCLUSIVE: Spurs to Sell Victor Wanyama

Lazy Fan insider has told us that Tottenham is considering to sell combative midfielder Victor Wanyama. The twenty-seven-year-old defensive central midfielder looks like he is surplus to requirements at Tottenham. Victor was about to enter his third season for the north London club.

Contract

Victor has got three years left on his contract in North London. This season or next is prime time to sell for the most money. Last season there were rumours that Victor Wanyama wanted a bigger contract last year. Tottenham has tight wage control. In there last set of accounts for 16-17 they spent £126.9 million on wages. That’s 6th in the premier league, £62.5 million less than Arsenal and under half Manchester United or City. If Levy doesn’t think that the Kenyan is worth the hike in wages then it will be time for him to leave.

Injury Problems plague Victor Wanyama

Last season was a bad season due to injury. Only playing 838 minutes in the league season. Compared to 3,016 in the season before. But Victor did start 6 of last 10 league games and come on as a sub the other two games. This will have a negative impact on the value that Victor could command. There is a chance that it could be a repetitive injury.

Preseason

Victor Wanyama’s preseason was cut short as Pochettino mentioned in a press conference “Victor has gone back with Tashan to London to see the doctor. I think it was the same problem as last season in his knee.” He is currently in doubt for the first game of the season against Newcastle. This could stop a summer move to Premier League team as the transfer deadline is next week.

Market

SportBild linked Victor Wanyama with Dortmund this offseason that have a later deadline and previously linked to Manchester United and Liverpool. He has got the interest of clubs that could afford the large fee for the in-demand midfielder. There should be a market to sell the player.

Spanner

What may put a spanner in the works is that is if Victor would like to stay with Spurs. It’s exciting times with regular champions league football and season in a new state of the art stadium. The only downside is a lack of trophies and worries that Pochettino may get pinched by a bigger team. Victor told Goal.com: “I am happy at Tottenham and I am committed to the team. I am not aware of anything [regarding a move away] and I am very fine and happy where I am.” This could just be a standard PR answer until he gets a better offer.
