Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that Tottenham are in talks with Anzhi Makhachkala over the signing of forward Willian.
The Brazilian had been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, however the lure of playing for AVB looks to have sealed the deal which has sent fans of the Anfield club furious on Twitter as they yet again miss out on a transfer target to us.
A £30million transfer fee, which would break our club transfer record of the recent arrival of Roberto Soldado has been mentioned, with Willian said to already be in London and a medical is said to be taking place today.
“I can’t really confirm anything regarding Willian. There is interest in the player and there have been conversations,” Villas-Boas said at a press conference prior to Tottenham’s Europa League play-off against Dinamo Tbilisi.
Should Willian join Spurs, it will break our transfer record for a third time this summer
