Willian going to Chelsea instead of Tottenham?

Epsilon

We're getting gazumped by the great gazumpers, y'all. Chelsea are reportedly in for Willian.

Know how Tottenham Hotspur had a bid accepted for Willian and he had a medical that he passed? Well, he hasn't signed pen to paper yet. That's because he's reportedly considering other options, one of which looks to be Chelsea. According to Bryan Swanson of Sky Sports, we're about to get gazumped by our noisy West London neighbors.

Well, that's disappointing, but Chelsea can almost certainly offer bigger wages than we can. I'm not entirely certain what the hell a team that has Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata, Andre Schürrle, Kevin de Bruyne and Victor Moses wants with Willian, but whatever. To each team their own, I guess.

In the event that Tottenham get Erik Lamela, I'm not going to be the least bit bothered by losing Willian. Andros Townsend is a freaking boss anyway.
