Why sell Wanyama when he’s perfect man to replace Dembele

Why sell Wanyama when he’s perfect man to replace Dembele

Tottenham Hotspur fans are probably still yet to get over Wednesday night’s win over Manchester City as their side now find themselves in the semi-final of the Champions League. 

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have VAR to thank for a late check which ruled out Raheem Sterling’s last-gasp goal at the Etihad, but that shouldn’t take anything away from their fantastic performance.

Although, it looks as if the Argentine has made a rather debatable decision involving one of his current players, as according to Daily Mail, Spurs are expected to listen to offers for Victor Wanyama.

Of course, this may come as a surprise to many supporters as Victor Wanyama has been one of the shining lights for Spurs in Harry Winks’ absence in recent games.

The Kenya international showed that he can influence the game in the final third against Huddersfield Town recently and he’s been rock solid in the middle of midfield. He proved himself against Manchester City in both legs of their Champions League tie, so he surely must have done enough to warrant a future in North London.

Indeed, Spurs risk losing their perfect Dembele replacement as Wanyama is starting to fit into the Belgian’s role nicely, with his passing ability unlocking many doors for Spurs. He’s controlled the midfield at times and is almost impossible to get past, so he’s well on his way to replacing the former Spurs man. Also, the Kenyan offers that extra something special in the final third and is a constant threat from set-pieces.

Tottenham Hotspur fans, do you think Wanyama deserves to stay in North London? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
