Premier League clubs might face a rather lean summer season after the COVID-19 outbreak that brought football to a screeching halt.

That has been stressed by the fact that The Daily Mirror has actually declared that Tottenham Hotspur might even have a hard time to generate a totally free agent once the summer transfer window opens.

Indeed, Spurs have actually been linked with a possible relocation for Chelsea’s Willian, whose agreement is due to expire as soon as the season ends.

The Brazil worldwide has actually made an overall of 37 looks in 2019/20, per Transfermarkt, and Arsenal have actually likewise been credited with an interest in the 31-year-old.

Nevertheless, The Mirror have now sounded a note of caution, insisting that the continuous monetary crisis might hamstring any efforts to secure his signature.

Real Madrid were likewise sounded out relating to a possible deal however hesitated to provide the forward a three-year deal, and have subsequently turned down the chance.

Per Spotrac, Willian presently makes ₤120,000-per-week at Chelsea; just three players at Tottenham – Harry Kane, Tanguy Ndombele, and Son Heung-Min – earn more than the Blues ace.

Willian isn’t worth the cash whether Spurs have it or not.

The Brazilian is a great winger, of course he is, and has won the Premier League on two different events, however this is a player who is over 30, and who is incredibly well spent for his trouble at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs, though, have a number of alternatives; they have Kid, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn, and Ryan Sessegnon who can use both flanks.

A transfer to generate Willian would, for desire of a better word, be throwing money down the drain; he would enhance a location in which Spurs currently have authentic depth.

This, then, may well be a blessing in camouflage; the monetary crisis has surely honed the focus of clubs such as Tottenham, and guaranteed that whatever cash they have is well spent, rather than wasted.
