Paul Robinson has called on Tottenham Hotspur to sign Willian from Chelsea, per Football Insider.
Spurs have been linked with a possible swoop for the Brazil international, who worked under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
The Transfer Window Podcast, to whom Duncan Castles regularly contributes, claims that the club are hopeful of signing the 31-year-old, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
And Robinson believes that they should make every effort to snap up the two-time Premier League winner.
Of course, Spurs attempted to buy Willian before he joined Chelsea and he even underwent a medical at the club before changing his mind and sealing a move to Stamford Bridge in 2013.
Robinson said: “I wouldn’t care about what he has said about Spurs in the past, look at what Mourinho has said about Spurs in the past.
“If Willian became available, he is a top-quality player and if there is anyway Mourinho could convince him to come to Spurs, he’d be a brilliant addition.
“I think he’d fit into the squad perfectly as he’s a top-class player and you know what’s gone on in the past is irrelevant.
“If he performs in a Tottenham shirt, there won’t be a problem.
“Mourinho said previously he’d never become Tottenham manager, so I’m sure with a couple of wins and a couple of trophies in the cabinet, all will be forgiven.”

Willian would come in and add some genuine experience to the Spurs ranks.
Of course, he is 32, and this would be a break in policy from the club, who routinely attempt to sign players under the age of 30.
But bringing in such a proven winner, who has also won the FA Cup and the League Cup at Chelsea, while winning 69 caps for Brazil, is something of a no-brainer.
He remains a key member of the Blues’ squad, making 26 appearances in all competitions and scoring five goals and registering five assists.
Chelsea, surely, will want to keep him at the club but if he does not commit his future, Spurs should absolutely make a move.
They can finally bring in the Brazilian, six years after he first slipped through their fingers.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans have hit out at one man.
