Tottenham On Verge of Signing Willian As Brazilian Winger Arrives In London for Medical

Willian Tottenham On Verge of Signing Willian As Brazilian Winger Arrives In London for Medical

Brazilian left winger Willian has arrived in London today, and is expected to complete a medical before signing for Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth around £30million, according to a report in The Daily Mail.

Last week, Liverpool were poised to make a £30million offer for Willian, but Tottenham Hotspur have leapfrogged the Reds in the pursuit of the highly-rated Anzhi Makhachkala attacking midfielder.

Willian would be an ideal replacement for Gareth Bale, who is close to finalizing a deal that could send the £93million-rated player to Real Madrid.

In addition to trying to sign Willian, Tottenham are close to signing AS Roma winger Erik Lamela as well as Croatian attacking midfielder Alen Halilović.
