Manchester United targeting Celtic’s Victor Wanyama

Manchester are weighing up a January move for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama. Sir Alex Ferguson's brother Martin - who works as one of United's team of scouts - has watched Wanyama several times this season.

United are in the market for a defensive midfielder and Kenya international Wanyama is one of the names on their radar following his impressive form north of the border.
The 21-year-old joined Celtic for £900,000 from Belgian side Beerscho AC in July 2011 and has emerged as a key member of Neil Lennon's side.
Martin Ferguson has watched him in Celtic's Champions League games this season, to assess his merits against stronger opposition than he meets in the Scottish Premier League.
Wanyama is a robust, tough-tackling midfielder in the style of Newcastle's Cheick Tiote, who United have also been monitoring.

However, the bid for the Kenyan defensive midfielder will not be anything far from £10 million according to Celtic who bought him for only £900,000 from Beerscho AC last summer while United are ready for a £7 million bid.
