Tottenham set to trump Liverpool in transfer pursuit

willian.jpgMetro have been doing a rather good job of keeping us all updated about comings and goings here in the Football Transfer Tavern this summer and their reports on the situation with Tottenham target Willian are second to none.

Now it seems that the player could well be making a move to North London after making it clear that it is a Premier League move that he wants – and with a top club.

Liverpool are also rumoured to be keen on bringing the player to Anfield and as one of our punters reminds us, Willian had gushed about the Reds not too long ago.

The player has been trying to make a move to the Premier League for as long as we can remember and now Anzhi Makhachkala seem to want him out in order to lower their wage bill.

Given that both Liverpool and Tottenham seem to be in a similar situation in keeping their star assets this summer, with both Gareth Bale and also Luis Suarez trying to force through transfers, it is no shock that both clubs want to bring in a replacement marquee signing.

Spurs and Andre Villas-Boas have been doing rather a lot of business this transfer window and have seen that pay off at the start of the season, yet Liverpool have been relatively quiet and Rodgers has made no secret of the fact that he wants to bring in the £30 million rated Willian. Given the player is thought to be in London for a medical, Rodgers looks set to be left wanting.

Are Tottenham really about to beat Liverpool to another player following the Clint Dempsey saga last summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
