Chelsea star William has agreed to join Tottenham Hotspur next season, according to beIN Sports presenter Richard Keys.
The Brazilian winger is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the current campaign and as such, he is free to speak to other clubs about making a free transfer when the season ends.
The 31-year-old has been linked with a move to Spurs for a while and his relationship with Jose Mourinho seemingly gave Tottenham the edge in the race for his signature.
According to Keys, Willian has already spoken to Jose Mourinho and as such, he’ll be moving to Spurs.
Speaking on the Keys & Gray show on beIN Sports, he said:
[Willian is] another one that has already spoken to Jose Mourinho, he’s on his way to Tottenham.

Losing Willian will be a blow to the Blues as he’s performed very well this season.
However, with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi on their books, Chelsea have younger wingers who’ll be keen to impress and hopefully, they’ll be able to step up to the plate.
It’s hardly ideal to see a Chelsea star leaving to bolster Tottenham, who are a rival in terms of the top four race, but if Willian doesn’t want to sign a new contract, it’s a situation that the Blues can’t do much about.
