Tottenham managed to secure £11m midfielder amid Bournemouth interest

Bournemouth wanted to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama in the final days of the transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Victor Wanyama is one player on Bournemouth’s wishlist with the midfielder becoming a fairly frustrating figure at London club over the last couple of years due to injury.

The Kenyan made 36 Premier League appearances in his first campaign following his £11 million move from Southampton but has only played 31 times in the top tier across the two seasons since.

The Kenya international was ruled out of Mauricio Pochettino’s team for the Audi Cup due to injury, and he has fallen down the pecking order after the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele this transfer window. Meanwhile, academy product Oliver Skipp continues to impress whenever he is given a chance to shine.

And it appears that the former Celtic star could be offered a way out this summer with The Daily Mail claiming that the Cherries are interested in the 28-year-old.

Manager Eddie Howe looks set to go into the new campaign with many players sidelined due to injury, so it would be surprise if he wanted the side to make the most of the time remaining in the window.

However, a move for Victor Wanyama would be risky as the African had problems with injuries, and if he can stay fit, the midfielder would be an inspired signing for the Cherries.

But the last two years suggests that he may be a difficult player to rely on if he moves to Vitality Stadium.
