The Kenyan international will have to see a specialist over a knee injury that has kept him out since the loss to Chelsea in an English Premier League (EPL) match two months ago.

Pochettino gave no indication of when Wanyama will return to action when speaking to the club’s official website.

“We are concerned about Wanyama’s situation,” the Argentine coach said.

“We must wait for when he sees the specialist and then we’ll see what happens.

“But of course after some time without him involved in the training sessions and with the team, we are concerned,” he added.

“But now we need to wait next week to have a more clear idea of what’s going on.”

Wanyama, who joined Spurs from Southampton FC last year, has featured in two EPL matches the current 2017/18 campaign.

Last season, the 26-year-old central midfielder played 36 EPL games.

On 23 June 2016, Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur announced that they had sealed an agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Wanyama, signing a five-year contract for a fee of £11 million. Wanyama had previously worked with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino who brought him to Southampton in July 2013. Wanyama netted his first goal for the club on his home debut against Crystal Palace, in the 82nd minute of a 1–0 league win for Spurs. The goal made him the 138th different player to score for the club, extending its record for the most variety of goalscorers for a single club in the English Premier League.
