Liverpool now join crowded Wanyama race

WANYAMA-DUNDEELONDON, England, March 19- With doubts over whether he will play against Nigeria on Saturday, the Daily Mail reports that Liverpool have joined the chase for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Wanyama was injured during Celtic’s last-16 Champions League return leg tie in Turin and is yet to play for the Bhoys but Stars coach, Adel Amrouche has included the midfield dynamo in his final travelling squad of 19.

According to the Mail, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has had the 21-year-old watched extensively and is ready to make a move in the summer window.

Rodgers has made strengthening his defense a priority and wants at least one more attacking player.

Yet Kenya holding midfielder Wanyama fits the player profile desired by the club’s owners and he can also provide cover at centre back, which is a bonus.

Wanyama has been watched by both Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Everton and Sunderland this season as he has proved one of the stars of Celtic’s Champions League campaign.

He has one year left on his contract and Celtic would want around £10million.

Liverpool want four new players in the summer but are also likely to offload some of their big earners to help offset the cost and lower their wage bill.
