Wisterias normally do not transplant well. You can try it, (now) but you will need to cut the plant back pretty severely in order to ensure that it survives being transplanted. This article will help avoid shock from the transplanting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm

Just in case, I would recommend that you take cuttings or dig out some of the suckers. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/propagating-wisteria-cuttings.htm
