Tottenham Line Up January Bid for Brazilian Playmaker

White Hart Lane side still keen on Shakhtar Donestk star.

Italian source CalcioMercato today report that Tottenham are ready to re-ignite their interest in Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder Willian.

Andre Villas-Boas had been looking to land the 24 year old Brazilian international during the summer transfer window and had reportedly moved very close to securing the talented attacker. The White Hart Lane boss brought in a number of deadline day captures but appears to still be looking to bring in the Ukrainian based flair player.

According to this source Tottenham will make a renewed attempt to sign the former Corinthians star in January, a move that may be more likely to succeed if Shakhtar Donetsk are not still in the Champions League by the time the transfer window re-opens.

Willian can play in a variety of roles, either out on the flank or in an advanced midfield role and after five successful seasons at the Donbass Arena, having won a myriad of domestic silverware, one can appreciate why the former Corinthians man would be keen on a move and a fresh challenge.
