Anzhi Makhachkala’s Willian and Erik Lamela of AS Roma are both reportedly set to join Spurs.
Tottenham are closing in on the signings of Wilian and Erik Lamela, according to various reports.
The news was confirmed by a variety of respected journalists, including Guardian writer David Hytner.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is a known admirer of Willian and has twice seen bids rejected for the former Shakhtar Donetsk star.
Chelsea failed to sign the player during Villas-Boas’ tenure at Stamford Bridge and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy flew to Ukraine last summer to negotiate for the 5-cap Brazil international but returned empty-handed.
Willian joined Anzhi in January but the Russian club are keen to sell this summer, after deciding to slash spending by over 50 per cent.
Liverpool were keen on a deal for Willian but it is understood the lure of London and working under Villas-Boas, a fellow Portuguese speaker, saw Spurs leapfrog the Merseyside outfit this week.
The versatile forward, who can play on either wing or centrally, is understood to earn £85,000-a-week at Anzhi.
Lamela, meanwhile, is well-known to Spurs’ sporting director Franco Baldini, who signed the 21-year-old for AS Roma from River Plate in summer 2011
The Argentine’s father, Jose, and agent Pablo Sebbag are scheduled in London on Tuesday for a meeting with Baldini.
It is thought Spurs will pay in the region of £30m for Lamela, who has scored 21 goals in 66 games for the Serie A club.
The two potential arrivals will likely spell the end of Gareth Bale’s stay at White Hart Lane however, with Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claiming Real Madrid have agreed a package of £93m plus left-back Fabio Coentrao for the Welshman.
