Liverpool offer 50% sell-on clause for €30m star

Liverpool are reported to have made a proposal in their bid to capture Willian that would allow Anzhi Makhachkala to receive 50 percent of the profits from a future sale of the Brazil international.

Willian is available for transfer, like the rest of his teammates, as Anzhi look to trim their expensively acquired and exorbitantly paid squad, and claims Liverpool have lodged a formal bid for the player.

Tottenham have also made their interest official, but Liverpool are hopeful that the offer they have made will be more appealing to the Russian club, given the potentially lucrative sell-on clause.

Liverpool's offer is worth €30 million, while the Reds are also willing to match his £85,000-a-week salary, and Brendan Rodgers is reportedly hopeful of completing a deal for the 25-year-old playmaker within the next 48 hours.

The Anfield club do, however, face intense competition for the Brazilian from Tottenham, who have matched the offer in terms of value, although Liverpool would appear to have the upper hand in negotiations.

Should Liverpool be able to close a deal for Willian, he would become the second most expensive signing in their illustrious history, with the transfer worth more than the fee paid to Ajax to sign Luis Suarez in 2011.

Andy Carroll remains Liverpool's record transfer, having signed from Newcastle for £35 million - the highest amount ever paid for a British player.
