Tons of Tottenham Hotspur fans reacted after the Twitter fan account The Spurs Web relayed a TEAMtalk story that manager Jose Mourinho wanted to sign Chelsea duo Olivier Giroud and Willian this summer.
The report says that holding North London will offer international France a multi-year contract to convince him to join them.

It also says they are the only option considered by the 2018 Premier League World Cup winner, following interest from Newcastle, West Ham, Crystal Palace and Everton in the past 12 months.
TEAMtalk adds that Mourinho is also interested in signing Willian, a long-term goal, after being informed that his transfer budget will be cut in the next transfer window, wanting it when he was boss of Manchester United.
The duo would certainly bring some experience to the Tottenham team, and Giroud in particular could prove to be a crucial addition with the Spurs having no experienced backup of Harry Kane, as has been demonstrated in the absence of the ‘English international in recent months – they went six games without a win before the current halt in construction.
Supporters of the North London outfit seem fairly divided on the links to the pair, as you can see below.
Willian & Giroud be good signatures?

Football journalists get paid so much money for doing stuff and risking guesswork
Even though 99% of their assumptions always end up happening over and over again, their only responsibility is to make the gullible believe

I don’t know if adding players in their thirties is the right way to strengthen your team.
