Over the past few days, reports in Belgium have talked about an agreement being in place between Tottenham Hotspur and Club Brugge for Victor Wanyama.

On August 27th, Het Nieuwsblad reported the midfielder had a good conversation with Brugge manager Philippe Clement over the weekend and the latter is trying to convince the Kenya international to join the Jupiler Pro League side.

It was also explained a berth in the Champions League group stages would be an additional boost for the Belgian side to sign the 28-year-old.

Brugge face LASK in a CL play-off clash on Wednesday and Clement stressed Wanyama’s arrival doesn’t depend on his side’s progress in the European competition.

“Of course, the Champions League can be a decisive element for every player during the final days of the transfer period, but it is not that they only come to Club [Brugge] for that,” Clement was quoted as saying by Het Nieuwsblad.

“He’s not the only guy we’re working on. Whether Wanyama is my favourite egg in the basket? I know Wanyama fairly well and I don’t think he likes being compared to an egg.

“We know his quality and mentality. Whether or not he comes is not only in his hands, but also in Tottenham’s hands.”

The Club Brugge manager has made it clear the ex-Southampton man is a ‘priority’ target.

Het Nieuwsblad adds Wanyama hesitates to give his final answer because he wants to convince his family that a move to Belgium is the right step.

Het Nieuwsblad explain the negotiations gained momentum on Tuesday evening, but it’s not clear if it is between Brugge and the player or between the two clubs.
