Wanyama is considered a player of interest and knows several of the Liverpool squad well from his time at Southampton

Liverpool are eyeing a transfer move for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Wanyama has made 58 appearances for Spurs since joining the club from Southampton back in 2016 but the 26-year-old has received limited game-time under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

Daily Mail now claims that despite Manchester United and Chelsea keen to sign the Kenyan captain, Liverpool are leading the race to find a replacement for Emre Can, who is weighing up a summer move to Juventus.

Former Anfield captain and now youth team coach Steven Gerrard highlighted Liverpool's need to find a 'monster' holding midfielder for next season to bring the best out of new signing Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson.

“Emre Can's leaving, obviously Keita's coming in.

"But Keita is a No 8, Keita is a dribbler, and a runner. The way he (Klopp) plays he plays 4-3-3 more often than not. So you can accommodate a Henderson and a Keita.”

Though Gerrard's remarks were understood to be innocent of any inside information, Wanyama is considered a player of interest and knows several of the Liverpool squad well from his time at Southampton.
