Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Chelsea Chase

Chelsea may try to sign Shakhtar Donetsk’s Brazilian midfielder Willian after he helped defeat the Blues in the Champions League, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Tottenham could also try to sign Willian, who wants to leave Shakhtar for the Premier League and would cost as much as 25 million pounds ($40.2 million), the Telegraph said.

Moutinho Move

Tottenham will miss out on signing Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho, who appears headed to Paris Saint-Germain, the Daily Mail reported.

Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas’s attempt to lure Moutinho collapsed on transfer deadline day over the player’s wage demands and because of administrative errors, the Mail reported.

Adebayor Stays

Tottenham coach Villas-Boas won’t allow striker Emmanuel Adebayor to leave even though he isn’t commanding a regular first-team berth, the Evening Standard reported.

Adebayor is currently acting as backup to Jermain Defoe, with Spurs only employing a single striker, the Standard said.

Globe-Trotter

Landon Donovan may reject a third loan stint at Everton and go traveling around the world on his own instead, the Daily Mail reported.

The 30-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy forward said he needs time to think over what to do next, according to the Mail.
