Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has hinted he's keen on Anzhi star Willian.

AVB tried to sign Willian, also wanted by Liverpool, during his brief spell at Chelsea during the 2011-12 season.

"I have spoken about him in the past, very long ago," he revealed. "He is a player that I appreciate, but a player that belongs to Anzhi and I will respect them."
