Tottenham are keen to release Victor Wanyama from his contract.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho had hoped to offload the midfielder last month but potential new clubs were put off by his salary expectations.
France Football reporter Nabil Djellit that Spurs could instead cut ties with the Kenyan entirely by terminating his contract completely.
Wanyama, who was signed by ex-manager Mauricio Pochettino for £11.5million in 2016, has been restricted to just four appearances this campaign, playing a total of 122 minutes.
If Spurs reach an agreement with the African to pay off part of the rest of his deal, he would be free to join another club immediately.
