Competition: Premier League
Market: Victor Wanyama to join Arsenal
Odds: 6/1 @ Betfair
Southampton are reportedly sounding out midfield options in the January transfer window with the future of Victor Wanyama unknown. Arsenal have been linked with the talented ball-winner due to an injury crisis in their midfield.
The Gunners have already brought in FC Basel’s Mohamed Elneny to bolster their options in the middle of the park, and Wanyama is said to be on their shortlist too. Manager Arsene Wenger believes strength in depth in certain areas could lead them to the title this season, and with Francis Coquelin out for a number of months, Wanyama could be a good replacement.
A tough-tackler and hard-working player, Wanyama has been a key player for the Saints in the two-and-a-half seasons, but is reportedly seeking an exit. He’s had disciplinary problems this campaign, and manager Ronald Koeman has spoken a lot about the player wanting out of Southampton.
Tottenham have also been linked with the player’s signature, but Wanyama is 6/1 to make the switch to Arsenal this month. With the Gunners in desperate need of proven midfield talent, a wantway Wanyama may well fit the bill.
