Willian: In his Shakhtar days

Anzhi Makachkala attacker Willian is currently undergoing the final stages of his medical ahead of a £30m move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Sky Sports News.

The Brazilian international was made available for transfer earlier this month after Anzhi’s owner decided to pull the plug on his lavish investment into the club and cut the wage bill by selling off their high earning stars.

Tottenham soon joined Liverpool in the chase for the exciting 25-year-old but it appears the lure of European football and living in London has swayed the player to make the move to White Hart Lane, with Sky Sports claiming he was undergoing a medical on Wednesday afternoon in north London after Spurs agreed a £30m deal with the Russian outfit.

Once his signature is confirmed, Willian will join the likes of Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue in making big-money moves to Spurs this summer as Andre Villas-Boas continues to build an impressive squad.

Sky Sports also suggest that AVB is keen on Roma attacker Erik Lamela but any move may have to wait until Gareth Bale’s protracted move to Real Madrid is finally concluded.

Missing out on Willian is another blow to Brendan Rodgers though, with the Liverpool boss seemingly keen on bringing in a big name before the window shuts in 12 days time.

    Lets see in six months how good this guy is. £30 Million is far too much and if Spuds would not have sold Bale they also would never have paid this amount. Reminds me of the Torres and Carroll saga.

    Sick of hearing Liverpool fans saying we’ve snatched another player they’ve scouted and that Tottenham don’t have their own targets or scouts. Tottenham bid for Willian in January and AVB wanted him at Chelsea before that too. Do Liverpool fans honestly believe that they’re the only team to know of players and that we just wait for them to bid on someone and then jump in? A few years ago we wouldn’t have stood a vhance
