Can Arsenal beat Man United to Celtic star Wanyama?

Celtic are understandably keen to hold on to their Kenyan midfield star Victor Wanyama, but they face a tough task fighting off interest from Arsenal and Manchester United. The 21-year old, whose best position is as a central defensive midfielder, was catapulted on to the world stage with two outstanding performances against Barcelona in the Champions league.

Celtic were unlucky to come away from the Nou Camp with nothing after Barcelona came from behind and scored a winner with almost the last kick of the game. Wanyama was even better at Celtic Park, effectively stopping Barcelona’s one touch midfielders and scoring the opening goal. That is why Neil Lennon has suggested that his value has increased from the million they paid for him last summer to around £20 million now.
