Liverpool are keeping a close eye on Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama, according to the Mail.

Emre Can’s contract expires in the summer and reports suggest he is expected to join Juventus on a free transfer at the end of the season.

With that in mind, Liverpool will be in need of a strong central midfielder for the 2018/19 campaign, and the Mail believes Wanyama could be that player.

The Kenya international missed the first half of the season with a knee injury. Since his return to full fitness, he has struggled to dislodge Eric Dier from Spurs’ first XI.

Liverpool are believed to be monitoring Wanyama’s situation closely, while the Mail’s report also claims Manchester United and Chelsea hold an interest in the 26-year-old.

Wanyama scored a superb goal in Tottenham’s 2-2 draw at Anfield earlier this month, which I’m sure will have impressed Jurgen Klopp.

The midfielder remains a crucial part of the Spurs squad; not many clubs can boast a back-up player of such high quality.

Of course, if his game time doesn’t increase from now until the end of the season, there is a possibility he will seek a move.

If that is the case, I can’t see Tottenham selling to a direct rival, so I wouldn’t expect a deal to happen.

  1. Cunts like you only perpetuate the bullshit. A harmless comment by Steven Gerrard whereby he mentioned Victor Wanyama or a type of player like him would greatly benefit Liverpool’s midfield. All of a sudden the nonces in the press latch on to it and turns it into a story that Liverpool are interested in the player and monitoring the situation. What a load of bollocks. Victor Wanyama was arguably Spurs most effective midfield player prior to his injury and is only now gradually playing his way back into the thick of it you fucking idiot.

  2. Wanyama, despite that great goal, is not the player he was a season ago. I fear he’ll go the same way as prior DMs who were ‘beasts’ to start with at Tottenham (Sandro and Palacios for example) but who ended as damp squibs. I’ve always been concerned about his distribution anyway, even at his best, and although Dier is not perfect (he’s been a bit up and down too recently) he’s a better DM for us. That said, I don’t want Wanyama going to a rival because he may still have a part to play with us. If he wants away, sell him abroad.

  4. Craig francis- A club ban is going a bit far. Their players diving should be punished though and referees need to stop rewarding their antics. I used to respect Spurs and was always up for them in the north London derby but their constant cheating has turned me off them big time. Now I wouldn’t bother watching them play even though they play good football.

  5. Don’t you just love it spurs plying well and all the so called fans having a go keep on watching your own teams because true spurs fans just laugh at you comments it give us something to smile about because other teams are worried now by the way we are playing. Coys
