Willian gives us hints that he could join either club…
Brazilian playmaker Willian confused fans nationwide, after following a variety of Tottenham and Liverpool players on Twitter.
Liverpool are desperate to make the Anzhi star their marquee summer signing, but Tottenham are ready to hijack the bid, having already spent over £50m this summer.
Liverpool fans were rejoicing when Willian followed Brazilian Reds Coutinho and Lucas, but gave Spurs fans hope when he then followed Samba duo Paulinho and Sandro only hours later!
The 25-year-old then went and threw another spanner in the works by following Manchester United right-back Rafael!
Spurs and Liverpool are going to fight tooth and nail for his signature, after Anzhi admitted that any one of their big name players were for sale, after implementing a change in footballing policy to focus on youth development.
The mercurial attacker is technically outstanding, has an eye for a killer pass, and enjoys taking on opposing fullbacks. He would likely cost over £30m, having only joined the Russian club in Janaury from Shakhtar for a similar fee.
Willian wants a move to the Premier League to boost his exposure and World Cup chances. For a player of his undeniable talent, his two Brazil caps seems surprisingly low – but a well publicised move to England could see him re-enter Luis Felipe Scolari’s plans.
