With a current tally of over £50 million spent by the Lilywhites this transfer window, Daniel Levy is determined to transform the Tottenham side we saw last year into a title contending team, with yet another possible addition to the side still to come.

After Russian team Anzhi Makhachkala transfer listed every player on their team earlier this transfer window it has been understood that Brazilian international, Willian has been the subject of interest from numerous teams, including premier league sides Liverpool, Manchester United, and Spurs.

Some reports have suggested that personal terms have already been agreed with the Brazilian and Liverpool but the reds are still negotiating a transfer free with Anzhi as they are a little short of the initial asking price of £30 million.

Belgian international Jan Vertonghen has highlighted that scoring goals has proved to be a problem for Spurs after their narrow 1-0 win against newly promoted side Crystal Palace. Willian could prove to be the answer to Tottenham's calls as the 25-year-old could offer a better creativity dimension to the team.

Although originally tipped to join Liverpool, Tottenham are now odds on to get Willian after strong speculation stated that an incoming bid from Spurs was going to happen.

Tottenham are able to offer Willian European football this season, should they progress through the qualifying round against Dinamo Tbilisi. However Liverpool are unable to offer the Brazilian European football this season.

Andre-Villas-Boas has been a long term admirer of the former Shakhtar Donetsk man after being interested in his services at his reign at Chelsea.

Other reports have suggested Willian could potentially be Gareth Bale's replacement after the Welshman's future at Tottenham has been clouded by Real Madrid's constant pursuit.

Like Bale, the Willian transfer saga could continue right up until transfer deadline day on September 2nd.
