WillianTottenham are set to hijack Liverpool’s move for Brazilian playmaker Willian after taking steps to bring him to White Hart Lane according to the Daily Star.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are reportedly in advance talks with his employers over a £26million transfer and have been confident of landing the Anzhi Makhachkala player, but now Spurs have indicated that they could gazump the Reds’ offer by bidding £30m.

Willian has been made available for transfer by Anzhi after billionaire owner Suleyman Kerimov decided to withdraw funds with the entire squad being put up for sale.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man has placed Premier League alert when he admitted his desire to make to the Premier League and that had seemingly left Liverpool favourites for his signature.

However, interest from Andre Villas-Boas, who tried to sign the Brazilian during his short spell as manager at Chelsea, could see him moving to the capital instead.

The North London side would have the advantage of offering the Brazilian international European football should they beat Dinamo Tbilisi in their Europa League play-off.

Spurs have already have a productive transfer window spending nearly £60m on Paulinho, Nacer Chadli, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue who all featured during their 1-0 away victory at Crystal Palace yesterday.

Real Madrid’s pursuit for Gareth Bale continues and Willian could now be purchased to offer a suitable replacement for the Welsh star as the White Hart Lane club look to secure Champions League qualification.

Will Spurs beat Liverpool to the classy Brazilian? Let us know your thoughts below.

    Villas-Boas was asked whether he had made a bid for the 25-year-old former Shakhtar player.

    He replied: “No, no.”
