Victor Wanyama is a transfer target for Club Brugge and the Jupiler Pro League side have been trying to sign the Tottenham Hotspur player for several weeks.
Philippe Clement, the Belgian club’s manager, has already made clear the deal is in the hands of the midfielder and the north London club.
Het Nieuwsblad explained on Thursday that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is working hard to sanction the deal as he is aware the 28-year-old wants to leave. It was also reported Brugge have given the Kenya international time until Friday to decide over a transfer.
Club Brugge sold Marvelous Nakamba to Aston Villa and allowed Sofyan Amrabat to join Hellas Verona on a loan deal.
Their priority is to strengthen defensive midfield in the final days of the window and this has been revealed by their general manager Vincent Mannaert.
He also confirmed his side’s interest in Wanyama.
“Wanyama is one of the targets, but it is a difficult case. We have been working on it for a long time and the deadline is coming closer,” Mannaert told VTM, as relayed by Het Laatste Nieuws.
“As usual, we do not put all our money on one target, so there are also some others. Very soon it will be clear which track it will be – it cannot be otherwise because the window closes on Monday.”
Wanyama needs to find a solution soon, and with English reports suggesting the move is nearing, perhaps Club Brugge are on the verge of securing the Spurs man.
