Chelsea are preparing to hijack Tottenham’s £30million deal to sign Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala.
As I reported yesterday, the Brazilian has been in London, under-going a medical at Spurs and has also being discussing personal terms at the club.
Since then, it is believed that the 25-year-old is still considering his options and Chelsea are ready to pounce.
This will be a huge blow for Tottenham as they know that Chelsea can offer Willian Champions League football this season.
The news does come as a surprise for many as Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, had previously said that Wayne Rooney was his only transfer target this summer.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham respond to Chelsea’s sudden involvement in the chase for Willian.
