Liverpool are on the brink of landing Anzhi midfielder Willian in a bumper deal. The Daily Mail says Liverpool look set to beat off Tottenham and Manchester United in the £30million race to sign Willian.

Both Liverpool and Tottenham have entered into talks with Anzhi Makhachkala for the Brazil international but it appears Willian is leaning more towards a move to Anfield.

If Liverpool can complete a deal for the 25-year-old, Willian would become the second most expensive acquisition in the club's history and he would become the marquee signing that manager Brendan Rodgers has been desperate to make all summer.
