Victor Wanyama has been available for sale all summer, with Tottenham willing to let the Kenyan international go due to his injury woes and lack of playing time in the last two years, but there hasn’t been much genuine interest in his signature.

Spurs’ recent acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele & Giovani Lo Celso has also pushed Wanyama further down the pecking order, but selling the 28-year-old is proving difficult. Clubs don’t appear keen to sign an injury-prone midfielder who would set them back around £3.4m-a-year in wages.

Fanatik did report earlier in August that Galatasaray were showing interest in Wanyama, but time will tell if a deal is completed before the summer transfer window shuts. Gala’s interest in Chelsea midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko may also hamper their chances of offloading the outcast.

With Eric Dier, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Ndombele and Lo Celso to choose from in the Tottenham midfield, Mauricio Pochettino would surely be happy to part company with the Kenyan. Tottenham just need a good enough offer to accept.

Wanyama amassed only 509 minutes of Premier League football last season and was only deemed good enough for the bench in Tottenham’s opener with Aston Villa. A parting of the ways would benefit everybody.
