Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest report on Chelsea winger Willian, which suggests that Jose Mourinho must first sell players if he wants to sign the Brazilian this summer. 

According to the Daily Star (via The Spurs Web), the Portuguese manager has been told that he must move on some first-team players if he wants to sign the Chelsea winger ahead of next season.

Despite the fact that the 31-year-old’s contract with Frank Lampard’s side is set to expire this month, meaning he could be signed on a free transfer, his wage demands mean that the 57-year-old may have to sell players before bringing in the former Shakhtar Donetsk ace. One player suggested in the report as a possible departee is Erik Lamela, with the North London club reportedly open to offers of £20 million for the Argentinian winger (per Daily Star).

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

So far this season, the Brazilian international has impressed in his performances in the Premier League; averaging a 7.25 rating for his performances in the top-flight, having contributed five goals and five assists in 28 appearances (per Whoscored). The winger has played under Mourinho before during the Portuguese manager’s time at Chelsea, making 114 appearances in all competitions and contributing 15 goals and 14 assists (per Transfermarkt).

Reaction from Spurs fans to the report on Willian can be seen in the tweets below.

Plenty of Spurs fans still seem to hold a grudge against Willian, with the Brazilian having been close to joining the North London club back in 2013, before making a last-minute switch to Chelsea (per The Guardian).

Other Spurs fans suggested that they would rather keep hold of Lamela than sign Willian this summer.

Some Spurs fans disagreed, however, suggesting that Willian could be a good addition to Mourinho’s side ahead of next season.

Overall, it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans would be disappointed if their club signed Willian this summer, especially if it meant that a player such as Lamela had to be moved on.
