LIVERPOOL target Victor Wanyama is wanted by a number of Premier League clubs, according to Sky Sports.
The Celtic midfielder is expected to be the subject of a £10million bid from Southampton and Premier League new-comers Cardiff City, who are both looking to strengthen their sides ahead of the new season.
Celtic signed Wanyama from Belgian signed Beerschot in 2011 for £900,000. And after two highly successful years at Celtic Park, interest is high in the Kenyan midfielder.
Wanyama, who is just 21-years-old, scored 6 goals for the SPL champions last season, despite being a defensive midfielder. The Kenyan also scored twice in the Champions League, including the opening goal in Celtic’s famous 2-1 victory over Barcelona.
The Kenyan only has one year left on his contract at Celtic Park, and the Glasgow side know they will have to sell him this summer in order to receive some money for the youngster.
Liverpool have expressed an interest in Wanyama, with Lucas the only real defensive midfielder currently at Anfield. The 21-year-old could provide cover for the back four, and solidify Liverpool’s defence next season.
Brendan Rodgers is eager to add to his squad this summer, and has been linked with moves for Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
