Fergie eye on Celtic hero Victor

CELTIC boss Neil Lennon will fight tooth and nail to fend off increasing interest in Victor Wanyama from Old Trafford.

Alex Ferguson's priority in the January window will be to dump Nani and replace him with Porto's Colombian winger James Rodriguez, dubbed by many as the new Ronaldo.

But funds generated by Nani's exit should leave enough to make a move for Wanyama (pictured), who impressed everyone during Celtic's Champions League win over Barcelona.

Wanyama has been monitored closely by Ferguson who sent his brother Martin to Glasgow to watch the Kenya midfielder.

Ferguson has also been linked with Theo Walcott and a possible swap deal with under pressure Arsene Wenger for Nani.
