According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal to sign Southampton’s Victor Wanyama this summer.

The report claims that a fee in the region of £11 million has been agreed between the two clubs, and that the Southampton midfielder is expected to undergo a medical in the next few days.

Tottenham are looking to strengthen their ranks this summer as they anticipate another Premier League title push next season.

Mauricio Pochettino boasts a quality squad at his disposal, yet certain areas could be improved and one pressing area other than the striker department is arguably in midfield.

Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Eric Dier can be described as holding midfielders, but there is scope for improvement there with the idea of bringing in a player who excels out of possession.

Southampton’s Wanyama has been identified as a potential option, and it appears that the North London club have managed to secure his services, if the report in The Mirror is to be believed.

The Kenya international played under Pochettino during the Argentine manager's spell at St. Mary’s, and there is no doubt that he will add something different to Tottenham’s midfield should the deal go through.

Wanyama, 24, made 29 league starts last term, averaging 3.1 tackles and 2.3 interceptions per match.

With his contract on the south coast set to expire in 12 months' time, it appears that Southampton have been forced to cash in on him now rather than risk losing him for free this time next year.
