Tottenham Hotspur have received several enquiries about the availability of Victor Wanyama this month, that is according to a report from the Evening Standard.
However, it is thought that Spurs £9 million asking price and the midfielder’s wage of £62,000-per-week is putting off the interested parties. Indeed, Wanyama has been at Tottenham since the 2016/17 season and initially was a regular in the team, featuring 36 times in the league during his first year with the club (Transfermarkt).
This season, the 28-year-old has been well out of favour and has made just four appearances in all competitions and has been on the pitch for just 122 minutes in total (Transfermarkt).
As a result, Spurs are prepared to sell the Kenyan international, but they may have to lower their asking price in order to get him off their books. It seems that most fans wouldn’t be against doing just that, with many taking to Twitter to suggest that the current asking price is too high and that the best thing would be to just let him go for whatever transfer fee they can get…
Sorry what? £9m for a bloke who can barely run

Just let him go for 3-3.5m. Then the wages won’t be a problem.

Take anything. Take £3M.

The man can barely walk. Cheek to be asking for £9m for him 😂

Surely 5million, plus bonuses taking it to £9million ought to be the way to go?

Spurs want to pay 11m for a good striker in la liga with a good goalscoring record but want to sell wanyama,a finished player due to injuries,for 9
