Spurs are reportedly in talks with Shakhtar Donestk over the transfer of winger Willian as Andre Villas-Boas looks to bolster his attacking options.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in talks with Shakhtar Donestsk over the transfer of Brazilian winger Willian.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas is a long-term admirer of the 24-year-old and attempted to sign him during his time in charge at Chelsea last season.

The Ukrainians were reluctant to sell their star asset a year ago, but are apparently willing to listen to offers this summer with his contract winding down.

According to Sky Sports News, Shakhtar have rejected two Spurs offers already but Lillywhites chairman Daniel Levy is hopeful of lowering Shakhtar's £20m valuation of the player, who can operate on either flank or behind the striker.

Willian moved to the Ukraine from native side Corinthians and has since scored 19 goals in 129 appearances.
