Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly only make an approach for Chelsea winger Willian if they are able to find a buyer for Erik Lamela.

Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly only move for Willian if they are able to find a buyer for Erik Lamela.

With Willian likely to end his long-term association with Chelsea at the end of the campaign, Spurs have been heavily linked with an approach for the soon-to-be free agent.

However, despite Jose Mourinho said to be keen on the Brazilian playmaker, it has been claimed that any deal is dependent on the future of Lamela.

According to the Daily Star, Spurs want to part ways with the Argentine before making any financial commitments with regards to Willian.

Although Lamela still has two years left on his contract, the 28-year-old has struggled to hold down a place in the starting lineup, even when not sidelined through injury.

Given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, club officials will see value in cashing in on the former Roma man, despite Willian lacking a resale price.
