Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes that Willian would be an excellent signing for the club if they could pull it off.
Would you take Willian at Tottenham?
The Brazilian international of course currently plays for Spurs’ London rivals Chelsea, but Ian McGarry on the Transfer Window Podcast(via the Express) reported that Jose Mourinho could try and sign him this January.
Willian is out of contract at Stamford Bridge in the summer (Transfermarkt), which could tempt the Blues into selling him this month in order to avoid losing him for free.
Robinson believes that if Spurs could sign the 31-year-old it would be an outstanding piece of business as he would fit into their squad well.
When discussing the transfer link between Tottenham and former Shakhtar Donetsk man, Robinson told Football Insider: “If Willian became available, he is a top-quality player and if there is anyway Mourinho could convince him to come to Spurs, he’d be a brilliant addition.
“I think he’d fit into the squad perfectly as he’s a top-class player and you know what’s gone on in the past is irrelevant.
“If he performs in a Tottenham shirt, there won’t be a problem.”
There is no doubt that if Spurs were to bring in Willian then it would improve them as a team.
Indeed he has been an excellent performer whilst at Chelsea, scoring 57 goals and providing 58 assists during his time with the Stamford Bridge outfit (Transfermarkt).
Added to that, he has also helped them win two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup and one Europa League title (Transfermarkt).
So, it’s obvious he is a player who is experienced in the Premier League and familiar with working under Mourinho. Indeed, perhaps having someone like that it in the Tottenham dressing room could prove valuable as the Portuguese looks to get his tenure in North London off the ground.
