Tottenham may have to improve their bid for Willian Jose if Real Sociedad are to sell the striker, according to the Guardian.
Willian Jose suddenly emerged as a Spurs target on Wednesday evening when the Guardian initially reported that the Londoners had entered talks with Sociedad over a deal for the Brazilian, who has scored eight goals in 20 La Liga appearances so far this season.
Having been left out of the squad for Sociedad’s Copa del Rey clash with Espanyol, there has been plenty of speculation about Willian Jose’s future. Tottenham are the ideal club to link the 28-year-old with; Jose Mourinho is in desperately in need of a striker to fill in for the injured Harry Kane.
But it seems this one is more than just a rumour. Writing for the Guardian, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has given more details on the pursuit of Willian Jose. It is believed Spurs have offered £10 million but Sociedad are holding out for £21 million.
Mourinho is unlikely to be pleased if he doesn’t get a striker by the end of the month, so it’s now down to chairman Daniel Levy to agree a fee for Willian Jose or move onto other targets.
