According to reports in Germany this afternoon, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have set their sights on a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Powerhouse

Wanyama, a 26-year-old Kenyan international, has been on the books of Spurs since 2016, when he joined the capital outfit from fellow Premier League side Southampton for a fee of £11 million.

And the powerful midfield enforcer went on to establish himself as an important member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad in North London during his debut campaign with the club in 2016/17, racking up 46 appearances across all competitions.

This past season proved a difficult one for Wanyama, though, with a combination of injuries and competition for places having restricted the African to just 8 Premier League starts.

In-demand

Wanyama’s struggles over the last 10 months have since led to murmurs in the media that the former Celtic man could be on the move this summer, with a number of high-profile clubs said to be interested in his signature.

And, as per a report from Goal.com this afternoon, according to numerous German outlets, Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are keen on a move for Wanyama over the coming months, with BVB keen to add some steel to their midfield.

‘Committed’

However, any rumours linking Wanyama with an exit from North London should be taken with a pinch of salt, with Moussa Dembele’s impending exit set to leave a gaping hole in the middle of the park for Spurs, and the Kenyan himself having made clear his intention to stay put during a recent interview with Goal.com:

‘I always don’t respond to rumours and all those are rumours to me, I still have a contract with Spurs and that is what I want to see through.’

“I did not have a good season with the team because of injury and my aim now is to work hard during this break and return for next season even stronger and help them perform even better.’

‘I am happy at Tottenham and I am committed to the team. I am not aware of anything [regarding a move away] and I am very fine and happy where I am.’
