Competition for places in the heart of the Tottenham Hotspur midfield is certainly going to be tough going into the new season.

The arrival of club record signing Tanguy Ndombele has meant that the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Oliver Skipp all have a battle on their hands for regular game time.

Wanyama arrived at White Hart Lane from Southampton on a five-year deal for £11million in 2016 and enjoyed a stellar first season at the club before becoming stricken by injury (BBC).

Guardian sport deputy news editor, Ed Aarons has revealed on Twitter that there is interest in Wanyama from Ligue 1 side Monaco.

Wanyama featured in all three matches for Kenya at this summer’s African Cup of Nations, playing in every minute (transfermarkt) but was unable to take part in Tottenham’s Audi Cup fixtures against Real Madrid and Bayern Munich after reporting irritation in his knee which saw him remain back in London for further assessment (Spurs official).

Opinion

Wanyama’s injury record over the past two seasons has been a disappointment for both the player and the club.

With the quality we now possess at the central midfield position, he would be better off making the move away from Spurs to try and get his career back on track.

  1. Haff had injury issues the lady few years and when he did play towards the end of last season he looked average at best betting dispossessed often leading to open chances on the counter. With Ndoumbele now I would rather see Winks or Sissoko in the other spot and Skipp is coming along well. If we’re can get 15 for him or closest I say Pen the deal
