Tottenham Hotspur have strengthened their central midfield area considerably with the acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, and based on reports in the press they are not quite done just yet.
The club have also been linked with moves for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes (Evening Standard).
If Spurs land even one of the two, they will have an embarrassment of riches in central midfield with the likes of Harry Winks, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, and Oliver Skipp already at the club.
It looks like the club have decided that Wanyama is the one to move on as the Kenyan international has been linked with moves to Bournemouth as well as Monaco in recent days (The Guardian’s Ed Aarons).
Some Spurs fans on social media suggested that moving Wanyama on is the right thing to do but expressed their disappointment that things didn’t work out at the club for the 28-year-old.
Great player IF fit. Makes sense to move him on unfortunately

If it weren’t for his injuries he’d be a solid squad player for us. Such a shame.

Incredible but injured way too often. Hope we sell him, sad as it is to say

Put him on discount, clearance, sale etc. If he’s really already injured again then any funds offered for him should be accepted and reinvested. Shame he hasn’t been able to hold up. Was an absolute beast 2 seasons ago. #THFC #COYS

Unless we are getting both Fernandes and Lo Celso there is no way we can let Wanyama leave. COYS!

Would be great for him. Don't see him starting for us ever again

Spurs Web Opinion
Like these fans, we at Spurs Web are also saddened by how Wanyama’s Tottenham career has played out particularly after the promise he showed in his first season at the club. If not for his injuries, the Kenyan could have been a key part of Pochettino’s set up over the last two years.
