Tottenham are set to let Victor Wanyama leave to join Serie A side Roma – despite the club failing to secure any new signings in the transfer window yet.
Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to get some new faces in before Thursday evening’s deadline, but it looks like there will be another exit before any arrivals.
According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Roma had hoped to sign Steven N’Zonzi over the summer but they have so far been unsuccessful.
They are now reportedly turning their attentions to Wanyama, who only started eight Premier League games for Pochettino’s Spurs last season.
N’Zonzi, meanwhile, could yet leave Sevilla but he is understood to be keen on a return to the Premier League over a move to Italy.
Arsenal and Everton have both been linked with the former Stoke City man, but time is running out before the window shuts for English teams on Thursday.
Wanyama is not a regular starter for Tottenham, despite making 23 competitive appearances last season. He came on as a substitute in 11 of those, only starting eight league games and four FA Cup ties.
The Kenyan is also currently sidelined with a knee injury, and he missed four months of last season through various ailments.
He first injured his knee last August, before a thigh problem in May and another knee issue last month.
