The Kenyan is disciplined and dynamic in
the sense that he can provide ample
support to the defence while also
contributing to the attack. Keita’s inclusion
will definitely be advantageous but he is
more of an attacker, thus providing scope
for Wanyama to make room for himself in
the midfield trio alongside him and Jordan
Given Wanyama’s dedication and work-rate,
signing him could be a brilliant move to
bring about some much-needed solidity in
the Reds’ midfield. However, Tottenham do
not let their key players leave that easily and
when it comes to someone with Wanyama’s
potential, Liverpool could face an uphill task
to even try to lure him to Anfield.
Moreover, the £27m-rated Kenya
international is known to be quite loyal and
is unlikely to leave Tottenham and join a
direct rival. He might not have received
adequate game time this season but his
contract runs until 2021. Wanyama has
made an impact off the bench for Spurs and
he will be crucial for them beyond the end
of the season as well.
Hence, with the club fighting hard to secure
a Champions League spot, it is highly
impossible for them to sanction a deal for
Wanyama to join Klopp’s team. Hence, while
he could work wonders for Liverpool, it
remains to be seen if they succeed in
convincing him to move from North London
to the Merseyside
