Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder, Willian, is about to join Tottenham.
Spurs are expected pay the Russian club around £30million for the Brazilian. The 25-year-old has been in London for a medical and was discussing personal terms last night.
Liverpool have also been interested in the winger, but Willian turned them down once he heard of Spur’s interest.
If the move does go through, it will be the third time in the transfer window that Spurs have broken their transfer record. Willian will join the likes of Roberto Soldaldo, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho in a new look Tottenham side that are preparing for the departure of Gareth Bale.
It is believed that Willian will be the direct replacement for Real Madrid-bound Gareth Bale, down the left-hand side of Spur’s midfield.
