Willian has scored two goals in his last two appearances for the Blues, and the Brazilian is in good form at the moment and is a key player for Frank Lampard who has handed him the No.10 shirt.

However, Willian is coming close to the end of his Chelsea contract and is free to negotiate a pre-contract deal with foreign clubs from January 1, with his contract set to expire next summer and Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is reportedly keen on making a move for Willian in January.

Willian was an important player for Sarri last season. He made 56 appearances in Sarri’s only season at Stamford Bridge, scoring eight goals and contributing 14 assists, and reports claim Juve are keen on landing the Brazilian.

Barcelona are also interested in Willian and could reach out to the Brazilian in January, having chased him for the past two years but Chelsea refused to sell.

However, the Daily Express claim Willian has told pals he is not interested in joining Juve as he disliked Sarri’s style of football while he was at Stamford Bridge.

Rumours claim that the Brazilian is close to signing a new contract, but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard played it down after the win over Lille.

Lampard told the media: “I have got no news on the Willian contract. That’s a conversation between Willy, his representatives and the club. Everyone can see I’m happy with Willy on the pitch.”

Willian also revealed after the Lille clash that there’s no progress in the deal yet.

When asked if there was progress, he revealed: “No, no, nothing.

“[But] yes, I am still relaxed. I am calm, I am relaxed. I wait for the club.”
