Neil Lennon has revealed at Celtic’s AGM that he would be interested in signing Victor Wanyama in the January transfer window, but a potential move comes down to three factors.
According to the Daily Record, Lennon was questioned by a shareholder as to what areas of the squad he will strengthen in the transfer window and answered by stating:
For a player like Wanyama, availability and affordability. Would I like Wanyama in the building? Of course. But it may not be an area we are looking to add to because of the way the midfield is functioning. We are looking in the forward area.It may be the one area we are looking strengthen.

So a potential move for Wanyama will come down to whether he is available, affordable and if Lennon feels he needs to strengthen his midfield.
Given he has stated how he would like to sign the Kenya international, it appears as though Lennon may well have an eye on bolstering his midfield options, so therefore it boils down to affordability and availability.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on assessing his whole squad before making any decisions on potential departures, but moves away from Tottenham are looking likely given how Mourinho will be looking to shift players out to bring his own targets in.
