Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho must sell a series of players if he is to acquire the services of Chelsea winger Willian.
Willian will be a free agent at the end of the season and has strongly been linked with a reunion with Mourinho but reports from The Star indicate that the Portuguese must sell in order to accommodate the Brazilian in his team.
The reports indicate that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not prepared to sanction the signing of Willian who earns £120,000-a-week unless they can part away with until the club are able to recoup funds from the sale of a Wideman.
It is claimed that the player that might be sacrificed for Willian is Eric Lamela who the club is willing to sell with the club expected to demand £20m for the services from his suitors.
Lamela’s career with Spurs has been plagued by a few long-term injuries but he has still proved a quality signing with 33 goals and 47 assists across all competitions for the club.
Chelsea is said to be keen on keeping Willian but the player wants a long term deal something that has put his negotiations with the London club on hold.
Apart from Spurs, the player has been linked with a move to Arsenal and French giants Paris Saint Germain.
