Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has made an inquiry to Shaktar Donetsk over Brazilian international Willian.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Shakhtar value Willian at £19.5million, although the Ukrainian side claimed they turned down a £25.5million offer from Chelsea in January.

Chelsea have since moved on to other targets, securing the signings of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin, but Tottenham are still thought to be interested in bringing Willian to London. The 23-year-old was a long-term target for Andre-Villas Boas when the Spurs boss was at Chelsea.

The attacking midfielder can also play on the wing, and Andre Villas-Boas is believed to consider the Brazil international to be a potential replacement for Luka Modric.

The Croatian midfielder is seemingly on the verge of leaving Spurs, with Madrid leading the chase for his signature, although French side Paris St-Germain have reportedly entered the race and are considering matching Tottenham's valuation with a £40m bid.

Villas-Boas is also reportedly weighing up a move for Porto star Joao Moutinho. But the Portuguese coach, who managed the central midfielder at Porto, is thought to unwilling to match the player's £24million valuation.
