Southampton have seen a £12m bid for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama accepted by the SPL champions and this has led a host of other sides readying moves for the Kenyan international according to Goal.com.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has set his sights on the Parkhead youngster but having spent fairly heavily already this summer, and with more additions on the way, the Northern Irishman is looking to sell England man Jordan Henderson to help cover a move for Wanyama.

Similarly Rodgers sought to permanently offload Andy Carroll to West Ham before pushing ahead with moves to bring in new signings and will hope to do likewise with Henderson, though he may struggle to recoup more than half of the £20m invested in the former Sunderland man.

Wanyama would presumably be more tempted by a move to Liverpool than a switch to the South Coast and the box to box midfielder would perhaps be a better central midfield option to Brazilian Lucas Leiva, who has struggled to reach the level of form he had hit prior to a long term injury lay-off.

Celtic are hoping to make a huge profit on the £900k they forked out on Wanyama and there is no denying the 21 year old’s ability to perform at the highest level, with the Bhoys favourite looking very impressive in Champions League action last term.
