Arsenal transfer target rejects contract from Prem giants, could force January move

Premier League midfielder eyeing move to north London this January.

Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is ready to reject a new contract at the club in order to force a move to long-time admirers Tottenham.

The Kenyan international has been a top performer since moving to the Premier League from Scottish giants Celtic back in 2013, and his fine form has also seen him linked several times with Arsenal.

Spurs currently seem the favourites to snap Wanyama up, with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen to raid his old club in order to improve his options in defensive midfield.
