Posted by - August 25, 2013 - Chelsea, Tottenham, Transfer News and Gossip

Chelsea have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Willian from Anzhi, subject to the player being given a work permit.

The Blues have beaten Spurs to the £30m signing of the Brazilian star after he agreed personal terms with them and a deal was struck with the Russian side.

A statement on the club’s website reads: “Chelsea Football Club can confirm an agreement has been reached with both Willian and his club Anzhi Makhachkala for the transfer of the Brazilian player.

“The transfer is subject to a work permit hearing on Wednesday.”

Sources close to the deal had claimed that a work permit was now the only sticking point yesterday, and that has now been confirmed by Chelsea.

The 25-year-old had previously passed a medical at Spurs last Wednesday before Chelsea launched their bid at 6pm on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Spurs are said to be lining up Hulk as an alternative option.

    Right. Your moron owner spent 30M on a player who will hardly ever play and isn’t as good as the players you already have at that position. Genius.

    i suppose it suits the chelsea mob to think that they put one over on spurs but the reality is that most of the spurs fans aren’t really bothered..are chelsea going to “hijack” ALL our targets?are they about to bid for lamela,erikson and chiricihes just to stop our progress…?mourinho looked like a grinning child when he gave that press conference.maybe this is why he is slowly losing the respect that the footballing world had for him… sum it up….MEH!
