Real Sociedad want £18 million for Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Willian Jose, that is according to a report from the Telegraph.
Spurs have been rumoured to be interested in the Brazilian striker for a few days now, with the Guardian reporting that he has a £59 million release clause in his contract.
But the Telegraph believe that the north London outfit would not have to pay that to secure the 28-year-old’s services and could instead get him at a cut price.
A striker is certainly on Jose Mourinho’s wish list before the transfer deadline passes, with Harry Kane having been ruled out until at least April after having surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring (tottenhamhotspur.com).
Willian Jose would fit the bill and is a player who has been in decent goal scoring form of late, netting eight times in his last 16 La Liga appearances (Transfermarkt). He was also left out of Sociedad’s squad for their Copa del Rey tie against Espanyol on Wednesday, so rumours of his potential exit are likely to intensify.
After reading that it could cost just £18m to secure the striker, plenty of Spurs fans have urged the club to get a deal done in the next few days. Here is what some had to say on Twitter…
18 million is fine we have to buy him
