Tottenham should attempt to sign Willian again after latest Brazil display

Chelsea attacker Willian was one of the Brazil heroes as they reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup with a 2-0 win over Mexico, and it may well have caught the attentions of a number of clubs.

The tournament favourites were struggling to break down the Central American nation, but the Blues winger produced a moment of magic to give his nation the lead as he sprinted down the left-hand side before some intricate play led to him crossing to Neymar to finish.

Tottenham Hotspur thought they had a deal wrapped up for the Shakhtar Donetsk man back in 2013, but the deal was hijacked by their London rivals at the last minute even though he had already passed a medical with Spurs.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino may well be looking to strengthen his attacking options before the transfer window slams shut on August 9, in order to provide some much-needed competition for the likes of Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

In his 91 minutes on the pitch Willian showed his attacking qualities by completing seven dribbles, providing three key passes – including the assist for Neymar’s goal – while he also had two shots at goal himself.

The 29-year-old has shown his versatility by being able to play on either flank, and he could prove to be a brilliant buy for Tottenham in their bid to compete for the Premier League title and for the Champions League this season.
