According to the Sun, European giants Juventus and Barcelona are interested in signing the winger.
Willian has five goals and four assists across all competitions this season, while this may seem like an average return for a player of the Brazilian’s calibre – Willian has turned up in crucial moments for the Blues this season.
Willian scored two goals in Chelsea’s recent 2-0 victory over rivals Tottenham. It’s clear that the 31-year-old still has plenty to offer at the top level.
