Song spent a year at Liverpool and two years at West Ham during a 16-year professional career.
He has also represented his country an impressive 137 times after making his debut in 1993 aged 17.
The former Reds player has currently been working as a coach for Cameroon’s football federation following his departure as Chad coach.
Song has been a huge influence in Africa for his successful career in football and Kenya international Wanyama may have idolised the defensive player when growing up.
Wanyama, 25, completed a summer move to White Hart Lane in the summer in an £11million fee.
He has helped shore up an already impressive Spurs defence and has featured in eight fixtures in the new campaign with the north London club currently sat in second place and a point behind league leaders Manchester City.
