Victor Wanyama is eyeing a possible transfer to Brugge.

The Kenyan footballer arrived at Spurs back in the summer of 2016, for a fee a little over 14 million Euros.

He came from Southampton as a no-nonsense defensive midfielder, who had a knack of picking up a few goals each season too,

Before Southampton, he was at Celtic, where he managed 13 goals and 9 assist in 91 games.

At the Saints, he played 93 games, netting 4 times and adding only 2 assists.

His form for Tottenham has not been as prolific as his time in Scotland. He has played 97 games for the North London club and scored on only 7 occasions and had one assist.

The 28-year-old has seen his inconsistent form bring him down the ranks under Mauricio Pochettino.

Last season he made 22 appearances for Spurs, of which only 13 were in the League.

The season before that saw him make 18 league appearances.

This is a stark contrast to his debut season of 36 league appearances and 47 in all competitions.

He has yet to feature at all this season for Pochettino. With the arrival of three midfielders, Ndombele, Sessegnon, and Lo Celso it is unlikely he will even get a look in this year.

According to The Express, Belgian giants Brugge are contemplating an offer in the 20 million Euro range to bring end his exile at Tottenham.

Wanyama still has two years left on his current deal, and it is believed he earns 70,000 Euros a week.

This may prove to be a problem unless the player is willing to take a substantial pay cut.

The Belgians are willing to spend, as they have cashed in on the sales of Marvelous Nakamba to Aston Villa, and Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld to Bournemouth this summer.
