Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest report on Chelsea winger Willian, which suggests that Tottenham and Arsenal will battle it out to sign the Brazilian this summer.
According to The Telegraph (via Daily Hotspur), the Lilywhites are competing with their North London rivals to secure the 31-year-old’s signature this summer. The former Shakhtar Donetsk winger is out of contract with Frank Lampard’s side in June and, based on the Telegraph’s report, it seems as if he is likely to remain in London, so it will be interesting to see if he links back up with his former manager Jose Mourinho at Spurs.
So far this season, the £20.25 million-rated man has impressed in his performances in the Premier League, contributing five goals and five assists in 28 appearances in the top flight, averaging a 7.25 rating (per WhoScored).

These Spurs fans would clearly prefer to see Willian join Arsenal over their own club this summer.
What do we think?
It seems as if these Spurs fans still dislike Willian for when he rejected them to join Chelsea back in 2013, as it seems strange that they wouldn’t want their club to sign the Brazilian on a free transfer, considering his strong form so far this season.
