Tottenham target Willian Jose ‘travelling to London for medical’ ahead of £60m transfer

TOTTENHAM target Willian Jose is reportedly travelling to London for a medical ahead of his transfer from Real Sociedad.

Spanish outlet AS claim the Brazilian striker has a release clause of just under £60million that Spurs won’t have to pay if they come to an agreement with the La Liga side.

The report adds that the 28-year-old will now head to the English capital either on Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning to complete a move.

Jose has since been left out of Sociedad’s squad to play Espanyol in the Copa del Rey, with the club revealing that the forward asked not to be picked until his situation is resolved.

Tottenham have been desperate to land a new frontman in the January window, with star man Harry Kane sidelined with injury until at least April.

Jose is the team’s top goalscorer with eight league strikes, three behind the England star he is replacing, as he helped Sociedad to sixth in La Liga, four points off the top four.

He was signed by Real Madrid on loan in 2014 but he only played one game before being released.

But the 6ft 2in striker has bagged 46 goals for Sociedad in 112 games since joining in 2016.

Spurs are without a Premier League win in four games and a goal in three before tonight’s home clash with bottom club Norwich.

And when asked about possible incomings this week, boss Jose Mourinho admitted that his sputtering side were lacking in key areas.

He said: “To do something you have to do something that is good for our future too, not just good for tomorrow.

“Something that is good for the future too and of course the club is very aware of it and the club is very committed of course but we want to do something that is right by every point of you.

“So I don’t speak about other players from other clubs about things that can happen or not happen because that’s not me and that’s not the way Tottenham operate too.

“But we are trying to see if any good opportunities arise.”
