Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is eager for a summer move to Tottenham Hotspur to reunite with former manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to the Daily Mail.
The Kenyan star has strongly voiced his desire to leave St Mary's and has convinced the ex-Saints boss to attempt to make him his first signing as Spurs manager.
The 22-year-old has performed enormously well in what is arguably his best ever season and much of this is down to the Argentinian's coaching, which has seen him impress as a defensive midfielder in front of the back four. His displays have notably had a huge part to play in Southampton conceding very few goals.
After his £12 million move from Celtic, Wanyama initially struggled to make an impact at the start of the season, but Pochettino kept the faith and helped him find his form, eventually becoming a key man in the Southampton line up.
The uncertainty over the future of Spurs trio Paulinho, Sandro and Etienne Capoue, may open the door for a move, however Southampton certainly won't want to let Wanyama go easily, or for a cheap price.
With teammate Rickie Lambert's reported £4 million transfer to Liverpool almost a done deal and Adam Lallana set to follow in his footsteps to Anfield, it is no surprise Wanyama is now looking to find a way out of the club.
With the best option being somewhere where he can carry on his good form and play in Europe White Hart Lane seems a good fit.
