Chelsea join chase for Southampton star

Chelsea are reportedly ready to make a move for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama in the January transfer window.

The Star on Sunday reports that the Blues will make a £20million bid for the 24-year-old in January.

Chelsea are desperate to beat Tottenham to the signature of the former Celtic midfielder.

Wanyama joined Southampton in a £12.5million deal from the Scottish giants in 2013.

Tottenham had a £18million plus Erik Lamela on loan bid in the last days of the transfer window rejected by the Saints.
