Chelsea Are In Advanced Talks to Sign Willian From The Grasp of Tottenham

willian Chelsea Are In Advanced Talks to Sign Willian From The Grasp of Tottenham

Chelsea are in talks to sign Brazilian midfielder Willian and are close to agreeing a deal right under the noses of Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham were expected to announce the signing of Anzhi footballer Willian today after agreeing personal terms and the player passing a medical, but Willian was believed to be considering his options before deciding whether to sign with Tottenham.

That option is now Chelsea Football Club.

If Jose Mourinho’s side can step in and finalize a deal for Willian, that will come as a huge blow to Tottenham Hotspur who were able to outbid Liverpool to attract the interest of the Brazilian.

Where do you think Willian will end up? Chelsea, Tottenham or another Premier League club? Let us know in the comments section below.
