'What a signing', 'Elite' – Liverpool fans in bits as Klopp reportedly set for shock summer move
Liverpool have been linked with a shock move for Tottenham’s tough-tackling midfielder Victor Wanyama in the summer and fans have taken to Twitter to urge Jurgen Klopp to sign the 26-year-old Kenya international.
The Daily Mail reported that Tottenham would have competition for Wanyama’s signature, with Chelsea and Man United also keen.
Wanyama was a key part of the Tottenham first team but has found himself on the fringes of the action since he returned from injury.
He’s only made 13 appearances across all competitions this season and that’s alerted the Premier League trio that he might be open for a move in the summer.
However, he’s under contract with Tottenham until 2021 and Tottenham have already said that they won’t sell any players they don’t want to in the summer.
That might make Klopp’s job hard, and Spurs selling to a direct rival would be a shock, but a move to Liverpool at the moment could be attractive for Wanyama if he was offered regular first-team football.
And, with Emre Can looking like he’s leaving on a free in the summer, Wanyama would be the perfect replacement.
That’s certainly what most Liverpool fans think and they’ve urged Klopp to bring him to Anfield in the summer, although some think that there’s no way Spurs would sell to a rival.
Here are the best reactions from Liverpool fans to the report about Wanyama:
According to reports, we are monitoring the progress of Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama. As Emre Can looks set to leave in the summer, Klopp needs to replace him with a defensive midfielder. What a signing that would be alongside Keita next year ???? #LFC #TheKop #YNWA pic.twitter.com/7PQIWJets6

Unrealistic scenario, but if Liverpool had the choice to sign 1/3 of Alderweireld, Wanyama and Kane, I’d sign Wanyama.

But I still believe, had Ings and Origi can be kept fit, they could do a great job as No.9. #LFC is better to invest in the better DM! I hope the interest in Wanyama is serious

I like Can, but I’d happily let him go if we could get Wanyama.

A midfield three of Wanyama + Keita + Fekir = Biggest smile on my face❤️

Doubt #Spurs and Levy will sell to a rival though.

There is nothing to monitor about Victor Wanyama. Just sign him #VM

Wanyama is a monster and one of the best DM's in the world. I don't think we can get him personally but with our African theme going he might be attracted. If not him I'd love to get Diawara.

Absolutely no chance of signing Wanyama. He is elite.

Even if we don’t get him its very VERY positive that we are looking to add a DM or someone close to wanyama profile that is really interesting in itself
