Bournemouth showing interest in unsettled Spurs star

Date published: Friday 2nd August 2019 10:18

Bournemouth are weighing up a potential move for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama, according to reports.

Wanyama has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs, managing just four appearances in the league last season. And following the club record arrival of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, Wanyama’s gametime looks set to drop even further.

According to the Daily Mail, the Kenya captain is one of the players Bournemouth are looking to sign before the end of the transfer window.

Eddie Howe’s side have already bolstered their midfield with the addition of Philip Billing from Huddersfield, but they could add more quality to the position in the shape of Wanyama.

The report does not suggest how much Bournemouth are willing to pay for the former Southampton man, but Goal add that West Ham and Galatasaray are also interested in the 28-year-old.

Current Cherries midfielders Andrew Surman, David Brooks and Dan Gosling could all miss the opening day with injuries, so Howe could be looking to get a new signing across the line to add the necessary cover.

The Mail add that Bournemouth are also looking at Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland, who is seeking a Premier League return to keep his England hopes alive, and Liverpool starlet Harry Wilson, with a £20m offer being readied for the latter.
