Spanish club Barcelona are set to submit a bid for Chelsea star Willian in January, according to reports from Spain.

Willian, who has been at Chelsea since 2013, is out of contract in the summer.

According to El Desmarque via The Sun, Barcelona are believed to be looking for cover for Ousmane Dembele after the £135.5million signing suffered a long-term leg injury.

Dembele was ruled out for around ten weeks at the end of November after picking up a thigh injury in Barca’s 3-1 win over Dortmund in the Champions League.

Chelsea turned down a £60 million bid for Willian from Barcelona in the summer of 2018 and it’s unlikely the Blues will let the Brazilian leave in January as he is a key player for Frank Lampard’s team.
