How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

Adam spoke about the options that Frank Lampard might have at his disposal next season and mentioned the Brazilian.

The 31-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur as his deal at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of this month, and he is reportedly in a dispute with the Blues over a new contract.

And according to the former Liverpool midfielder, if he were to leave Stamford Bridge, he would want to remain in London.

Here is what he had to say about Willian:

“They’ve got a rumbling on about a contract, he wants to stay in London, he wants three years, but they want to offer him a two-year contract.

“Without a shadow of a doubt, you have got to keep Willian. Wherever he goes, he makes somebody else stronger.”

It seems as if Adam believes Chelsea should keep Willian, but this contract dispute could see him leave.

Would you be happy with Willian on a free?

Yes

Yes

No

No

TIF Thoughts…

Willian played 114 matches under Jose Mourinho, in which he scored 15 goals and provided 14 assists for the Portuguese – so if he were to join Spurs, he has proved that he can produce for his would-be manager.

Tottenham are set to be limited to free transfers and swap deals in the next transfer window, so getting Willian on a free could be a great move.

The 31-year-old has made 227 Premier League appearances, scoring 33 goals and providing 37 assists – so he is certainly proven in the top flight.

The fact that he supposedly wants to stay in London should prove to be a big advantage for Tottenham if Willian was to leave Chelsea.

It remains to be seen if the Blues sort out his contract or if the dispute will see the former Shakhtar Donetsk man leave Stamford Bridge.

If that does happen, then we think Tottenham should make a move.
