Spurs close in on Brazilian striker

Tottenham are closing in on a deal to sign Brazilian striker Willian José from Spanish side Real Sociedad.

Reports are suggesting that the player has flown to London ahead of a deal being sealed, as Spurs look to solve their striker crisis, with Harry Kane ruled out of action until April at the earliest with a hamstring injury.

They won their first game of 2020 defeating Norwich City 2 -1 at White Hart Lane on Wednesday, but manager Jose Mourinho was quick afterwards to underline the need to bring in another forward.

José began his career in Brazil with Barueri, before a series of loam moves taking him to Santos, Gremio, Real Madrid’s B team, Zaragoza and Las Palmas. He signed for Real Sociedad in 2016, and has since gone on to score 52 goals for them in 121 appearances.

He has won 15 caps for Brazil at under-20 level and has twice been called-up for the full international squad, although he has yet to make his debut for them.
