Report: Tottenham manager Mourinho eyes Willian swoop

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly considering making a move for Chelsea winger Willian.

As reported by The Evening Standard, the Portuguese could come in for his former player, whose contract is expiring at the end of the season.

The Brazilian, 31, famously almost joined Spurs before eventually choosing the Blues back in 2013.

The South American cost a reported £30 million (BBC Sport), and has gone on to make over 300 appearances in total for the club.

One of Willian’s best performances of the 2019/20 season came against Spurs in December, when he hit a brace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a 2-0 win.


Now, Mourinho could try to facilitate a reunion with Willian, who is also supposedly being tracked by the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan.

TBR’s view – Willian would improve any squad

He may be entering into the final stages of his career, but Willian still possesses fantastic quality and is still impressively fit.

Not only does he run his socks off, but he also has respectable set-piece quality – at the moment, Spurs don’t really have anyone particularly great from dead-ball situations.

The star’s contract is running down meaning a potential free summer transfer could be on the cards.

That would surely make a move for the former Shakhtar Donetsk attacker a no-brainer.
