Tottenham Hotspur and Victor Wanyama are both reportedly hoping that a move away from the club can be achieved today.

The Athletic‘s Charlie Eccleshare has provided an in-depth update on the Kenyan’s current situation in North London.

Wanyama looked to be close to joining Fiorentina earlier in the week only for the Italian side to switch targets and instead sign Sassuolo’s Alfred Duncan.  Fellow Serie A side Napoli have declined the opportunity to make an offer.

Wanyama is said to have his heart set on a move to Italy with his representatives continuing to try and work on an exit.

The midfielder’s wages are said to be proving to be a stumbling block for interested parties with Wanyama insistent that he must earn at least £60,000 a week.

Given his record of injury issues in recent seasons, interested parties are reluctant to meet his wage demands.

His transfer valuation has also dropped over the past few days from £6.72million up until Wednesday, to closer to £4.02million-£5.04million ahead of the window closing.

Spurs are reported to be keen to get Wanyama off the wage bill and are even considering loaning him out for the remainder of his 18-month contract for a fee of just £2million.
