Liverpool 'confident' of 'Willian' signing - report
Liverpool are 'confident' of sealing the €30 million signing of Anzhi Makhachkala's Brazilian winger Willian according to reports in England.
Goal.com claims that the Reds expect to complete the signing after promising to match Willian's reported €100,000 a week wages.
The Anfield club have also offered a sell-on clause to Anzhi, promising them 50 per cent of any profit on any future sale worth over €30m.
Tottenham are also said to be interested in signing the Brazil star but Brendan Rodgers' side are said to be the forerunners.
"For now, all there is are talks. There was the Manchester City bid [of €40m], and that was turned down [before Kerimov decided to reduce funding] and that was a while ago," Willian told reporters last week.
Now, I'm waiting for a new bid to arrive in the next days from a few clubs, like Liverpool. If it's really Liverpool, then it is surely a great club. I'm hopeful and very calm, just waiting for the best."
