Ex-Arsenal star says team-mate too good for Tottenham

Shakhtar Donetsk striker Eduardo da Silva has urged team-mate Willian to snub Tottenham Hotspur and join either Chelsea, Arsenal or Manchester United.

The former Gunner was speaking ahead of his side’s trip to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday for their Champions League group stage encounter, and he feels Willian is good enough to play there, at Emirates Satdium or Old Trafford, but is too good for White Hart Lane.

“There are three clubs who are big enough and good enough for Willian - Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"Willian is a complete player now. He is ready to play for a big club and become a really big player.

"He should play at a top, top club because he is a class player. He can play in England, for sure.

"We always talk and watch Premier League games together. He asks me about England and the English game and I tell him little things."

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with both Chelsea and Spurs in recent weeks, even admitting he was in regular contact with Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas via text message.

Despite Eduardo urging him to consider them, Willian has not been linked with Manchester United or Arsenal and the 24-year-old publicly stated his desire to move away from the Ukranian club, citing Chelsea as a possible destination.

A talented attacking midfielder, Willian may struggle to find a place in Roberto di matteo’s side, who has an abundance of personnel in that area, with Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar all impressing since the start of the season.

Tottenham meanwhile, have struggled to find the net regularly in recent weeks and any extra creativity in wide areas or behind the striker is likely welcome.
