Manchester United are currently weighing up a move for Tottenham midfielder, Victor Wanyama to reinforce their midfield options, according to a Daily Mail report.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly, considering replacements for retiring Michael Carrick and Manuel Fellaini, who could ditch the club for Besiktas.
According to the report, Wanyama is one of the five players Mourinho and his coaching staff have penned down as they seek to find a player to marshal the midfield alongside Nemanja Matic and another to provide competition for Paul Pogba and Juan Mata.
Wanyama has found it tough to break back into the Tottenham Hotspurs first eleven since returning from injury. It is this situation that the Daily Mail suggests might have alerted United to think that he could be available for around £40m.
Wanyama, however, is not the only player United are eyeing. Ivory Coast international midfielder Jean Marie Seri has been on the club’s radar after his consistently top notch displays with French Ligue One side, Nice.
Serbian international Sergey Matic of Lazio has also been touted as another replacement for the outgoing duo of Carrick and Fellaini.
