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.
