Manchester United and Liverpool FC are both interested in signing Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that both of the Premier League sides are keeping tabs on the 26-year-old midfielder, who has been used sparingly by Spurs this term.

Indeed, Wanyama has started just two Premier League games for Tottenham so far this season and his lack of playing time has reportedly alerted a number of clubs.

According to the same story, both Liverpool FC and Manchester United are “firm admirers” of Wanyama and they could be set to make moves to try and sign him this summer.

However, the same report says that the biggest obstacle to any transfer would be Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy.

Wanyama has scored one goal in a total of 10 Premier League outings for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season, but his first-team opportunities have been very restricted.

He has only featured once in the Champions League for Spurs this season, and that was only as a late substitute against Juventus.

He did, though, play the full 90 minutes as Tottenham grabbed a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace in the Premier League last Sunday afternoon.
