Real Sociedad have left Willian Jose out of their squad for the Copa del Rey clash with Espanyol, amid transfer links with Tottenham
Willian Jose withdrew from Real Sociedad’s squad for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey clash with Espanyol amid reports he is set to join Tottenham.
Sociedad striker Willian Jose was initially named in Imanol Alguacil’s squad, but the Brazilian pulled out of contention after asking the club to be left out until his situation is resolved.
It comes amid rumours the 28-year-old is a target for Premier League side Tottenham, who are set to be without Harry Kane until at least April after the England forward sustained a hamstring injury.
Willian Jose, who joined Sociedad in 2016, has scored eight goals in 20 LaLiga appearances this season.
