Southampton midfield general Victor Wanyama has been cut into evens to make a move to Tottenham Hotspur by sports betting company BETVICTOR.

The 24-year-old Kenyan moved to St Mary's from Celtic in July 2013 and has since established himself as one of the Premier League's best holding midfielders.

The bookmakers place French Ligue 1 side Lyon as second favourites at 5/2 while Spurs' fierce rivals Arsenal are third favourites coming in at 7/2.

Tottenham's need for strength in depth this coming season has been highly documented, and the addition of Wanyama, should a move come to fruition, would represent the perfect acquisition. For all of the fantastic footballers at Spurs' disposal, it is only Eric Dier who provides an element of protection for their back-four. The Southampton man would certainly add steel to the North London outfit's midfield, and could also be used in rotation with Dier.

A common misconception amongst fans is that Tottenham need to go out and spend vast sums of money on supposedly world-class foreign imports.

Leicester City have shown that this is not necessarily the only way to prevail, however, and a key factor in Mauricio Pochettino's men succeeding next season will be the ability to pack out their squad with proven, Premier League ready internationals.

Victor Wanyama would be the ideal man to help Spurs compete on all four fronts next term.
