Manchester City are poised to increase their offer for Anzhi Makhachkala star Willian, according to reports in Brazil.

The 24-year-old only joined the Anzhi in January from Shakhtar Donetsk but could move on after it was announced the Russian side would be drastically trimming their budget.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with both Tottenham and Chelsea in the past, and was close to a move to White Hart Lane last summer.

Now ESPN Brazil say Manchester City are preparing to lodge a second offer for Willian having already had a bid in the region of £35 million turned down.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas and Willian have a close friendship, and the Portuguese tried to land the playmaker while he was still in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for the former Shakhtar star once again this summer and could move to sign him, while Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed his summer spending isn't over despite having already splashed £90 million on the likes of Alvaro Negredo and Willian's former team-mate Fernandinho.
