Willian looks increasingly likely to join compatriots Sandro and Paulinho at Tottenham - becoming the second Brazilian to join Spurs this summer, according to reports. 

According to The Daily Telegraph, the transfer of the Brazilian is looking ever closer, as it is believed the midfielder was in London earlier today.

The former Shakhtar player is a long-term transfer target for the Tottenham boss and it it's believed a fee of £30m will seal the deal as Spurs prepare for life without Gareth Bale - who is said to be moving ever closer to clinching his move to Real Madrid.

It was believed Liverpool were in pole position to sign the player after Anzhi owner Suleyman Kerimov decided to put the whole of his playing squad on the transfer-list, although Spurs' chief Daniel Levy flew out to Ukraine for talks with Shakhtar and Willian's representatives.

This signing would take Tottenham's summer spending to over £90m, with the signings of Roberto Soldado from Valencia, Paulinho from Corinthians and Nacer Chadli from FC Twente already confirmed.

As it seems Spurs are well placed to challenge for the coveted fourth Champions League spot that has deserted them in the last few years - going to their north London rivals Arsenal instead. 

With Daniel Levy pulling out all the stops to sign better players for manager Andre Villas-Boas one would think that fourth place would be the minimum aim for the Tottenham boss this season.
