Some pretty angry Southampton fans and then some pretty happy, and very boozy spurs fans here inside the Transfer Tavern today, after reports suggest Victor Wanyama is very keen on a switch between the two clubs – with the powerful midfielder wanting to end his time at St.Mary’s.
The Daily Mail are reporting that Southampton are trying to block a move, with the Kenyan international having a transfer request rebuffed by the club hierarchy.
Since their meteoric rise, the Saints have seen some notable departures to perceived bigger clubs, especially in the central midfield area. Adam Lallana left the club or Liverpool and recently in this window, midfield maestro Morgan Schneiderlin left, destined for Manchester United.
Whilst a deal may not look likely, Pochettino will be hoping he can use his time previously as manager of Saints in his favour, as he bids to sign a player he has experience managing.
