Chelsea could receive a bid from Barcelona for a key Frank Lampard player before the January transfer window closes on Friday.

According to Sky Sports, Barcelona are preparing a last-minute £20 million bid for Chelsea winger Willian.

The Spanish champions are long-term admirers of the Brazilian and launched a series of bids for Willian in the summer of 2018, the last of which topped £55 million, which were all rejected by Chelsea.

Willian’s Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season and despite his desire to remain at Chelsea, the club has failed to reach an agreement over a contract extension with the Brazilian.

Chelsea are only willing to offer Willian a one year contract but the Brazilian wants a two year deal.

Since joining Chelsea from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013, Willian has won two Premier League titles, a League Cup, FA Cup and Europa League with Chelsea.
