A recent report from the Telegraph has left plenty of Tottenham Hotspur fans in agreement over one thing – They do not want Chelsea winger Willian at the club next season.
They claim that the north Londoners will battle their arch-rivals, Arsenal, for his signature with his contract set to expire at Stamford Bridge imminently.
Both clubs are resigned to the fact that they will not be able to spend much money due to financial implications following the pandemic and signing the Premier League veteran on a free transfer could aid things somewhat.
And as you can see from this supporter, the idea of Willian finally being in Spurs’ white strip is clearly too much of a grim thought…
Idea of willing him on makes me nauseous

The 31-year-old has been quite the regular under Frank Lampard this term, providing seven goals and six assists in 37 appearances in all competitions, via Transfermarkt.
He could arguably still do a job at this level given that it is his best goal tally since the 2017/18 campaign and his versatility to play anywhere behind the striker.
Although, Spurs fans clearly still don’t want him as part of Jose Mourinho’s squad next term…
Let’s get involved in a battle with Arsenal be convinced he is about to sign only for him to appear in an Arsenal shirt. His best years are behind him can’t stand him #THFC #COYS https://t.co/bP8lyQM2dE

Don’t battle too hard. Don’t want him.

Don’t want Willian. Also, how are Spurs more affected than anyone else or is it Levy’s latest excuse. I understand that money is tighter but Spurs should not be different

Nahhh we got moura, son and Bergwijn. Another winger will waste us

One possible angle for this agenda could be the fact that the Brazilian wide man once ditched Spurs’ transfer negotiations to join London rivals, Chelsea, instead back in 2013.
7 years to late 🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️

Whilst further members of the Spurs faithful may have their sights set on other reported targets, such as AFC Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, who too is available on a free this summer.
At 26, he poses a long-term advantage for the club whether that’s an entire career in north London or creating resell value remains to be seen.

Only time will tell where Willian will end up but as above, many at Spurs will be hoping it’s not with them.
