22 year old Willian is an adaptable attack minded midfielder who who is in his fourth season at Shakhtar and is on the fringes of the senior Brazilian international set up whereas the more well known playmaker Douglas Costa only moved to Donetsk in January but has been strongly linked with a move to many of Europe’s elite including the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea.
