Man United & Arsenal Pursue £7m SPL Star

Parkhead star is apparently a wanted man.

Manchester United and Arsenal have joined QPR and Stoke in the pursuit of Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

It appears that Victor Wanyama’s agent has been working overtime of late, with the Kenyan apparently being tracked by a host of sides this summer. Whilst it’s true the young enforcer had a solid first season in the SPL it does seem a little unlikely that sides of Man United & Arsenal’s calibre would be taking an active interest in the Celtic man.

The former Beerschot man has taken well to life in the Scottish top tier but a move to the Premier League is quite a leap and perhaps with only one term North of the Border it’s a little too early to gamble on such a purchase, hence the interest from Stoke City and QPR being eminently more likely.

Arsenal are apparently looking to add steel to their creative midfield set-up, hence the constant speculation about apparent interest in French international Yann M’Vila. Indeed Man United are certainly short of dedicated defensive midfielders and have arguably not employed an out and out player of this type since Owen Hargreaves saw hit career ravaged by injury.
