If reports are to be believed Tottenham are on the verge of smashing their transfer record for the third time this summer, by completing the signing of Brazilian playmaker Willian.
Andre Villas-Boas has been a busy man in the transfer market already this summer, bringing in four new players already.
The club had previously broken their transfer record with the £17 million signing of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, followed up by the £26 million capture of Valencia’s Roberto Soldado.
Willian is set to cost £30 million from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala, with their billionaire owner putting the entire squad up for sale after growing disillusioned with their lacklustre performances.
Whilst the signing is likely to add further fuel to speculation regarding Gareth Bale’s future and his potential world record move to Real Madrid, there is no doubting these are exciting times for Tottenham, after a summer spent bringing in genuine world class talent.
Here we have identified five things you may not know about their latest potential star.
