Where's Willian?

[VIDEO PICK: Magic Feet] Brazilian star Willian is supposed to be in England today where some lucky suitor will pay nearly $50 million for him, so we're showing you what all the fuss is about.

Russian club FC Anzhi Makhachkala’s fire sale continues, and its latest bauble is Willian, an outstanding 25-year-old creative midfielder who is a treat to watch.

Willian and Fernandinho both made our Champions League group stage best 11 while with Shakhtar Donetsk, and after Fernandinho transferred to Manchester City for a similar fee, Shakhtar's Brazilian midfield pairing from last fall could end up costing a pair of EPL teams nearly $100 million to acquire.

Sources tell ESPN Tottenham are in “advanced talks” to sign Willian, but this is certain, some club is going to get a terrific new player, a vibrant personality and some of the best hair on planet soccer.

Where will Willian wind up?
