Brazilian star Willian is set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season as a free agent and the Blues are already looking out for replacements.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea are interested in signing Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa who is valued at around €70million.

The Blues will have to convince the 22 year old winger to ignore interest from Manchester United, Juventus and Inter Milan and join Chelsea instead.

Chiesa is a left-footed winger who plays on the right and tends to cut inside. This appeals to Chelsea as we don’t currently have a left-footed winger at the club.

Chiesa has scored 6 goals and provided 3 assists in 26 games across all competitions. He was a bit more prolific last season, finding the net 12 times in 41 matches.

    Please rampared why do you want to release Willian. Sit down and think twice, please don’t be like morihno Jose who came to finish chelsea

  3. I don’t like winger like this because his ability to strengthening the club is very weak see his scoring and assists is very weak so be careful this we need creative chances winger and scoring much goals and enough assists

  4. Example Arjen Roben and eden hazard qualities Top quality winger

  5. Isaac ssebitosi | April 28, 2020 at 6:32 pm |

    Should be replaced with a quality winger

  6. We need William.Do not let him from the Blues.

  7. Willian is the most overrated player in the PL. Ditch him.

    Looks like Frank Lampard is not thinking straight,Willians services are badly needed & Chiesa is not of Willlians standard. Think twice before you make a stupid mistake Frank.

  9. Please frank don’t release Willian from the team he’s needed and an asset to the team, very creative and speedy and he scores and assist please don’t release him

  10. Frank, kindly maintain William. He is an excellent player from the wing. Look at his strength, his goals and assisted ones. Chiesa can be signed as well but do not let William go.

  11. Willian still got a lot gas in the tank. Chelsea needs a proven senior for at least 2 more seasons. Chiesa’s record is not breathtaking. He might struggle to adapt to the Premier League.

    Frank dnt release William let him sign another contract William is an experience player look d goal wich he score against tothham spur

  13. Bryan Kirchin | April 29, 2020 at 8:38 am |

    Frank dont let Willian go, what are the defensive qualities of this new guy? Why would Willian accept a 2 year contract with Arsenal and not Chelsea?

  14. I hope Chelsea’s staff aren’t sleeping like Gardiola who chased Company but he has suffered the consequences,
    I can’t any player in to do what Willian is doing.. Apart from Him, whom do u fear when playing Chelsea? Zychi hasn’t proved anything, first hold Willian and release him if Zychi proves

  15. tee whizzz | April 29, 2020 at 9:53 am |

    if you really want to release him then get a really good player better than him otherwise the whole idea to release him seems to raise eyebrows…

  16. I know the winger but I think Chelsea should think more than once before releasing the play maker ….though chiesa got some good skills but …Chelsea should take note before releasing willian

  17. In this morden day football, we need speedy and unpredictable players, like KDB, not like William who always slows down counter attacks when we have reached the final third.

  18. You can’t replace William with such player. William his creative, that are the players that we need.

  19. Willian is a talented player, very good with the ball but has the poorest movements without the ball a winger of his class could have.Supporters should not forget that he is above 32 years. So let club try and get another player with big heart Damien Durf, Arjen Roben, Hazard who destroyed teams with or without the ball.

  20. Patrick lumumba Nyoduogo | April 29, 2020 at 1:41 pm |

    William is a great player. He is the only player whose absence will haunt the club. Don’t release him.

  21. Asena muyoma | April 29, 2020 at 2:25 pm |

    Chelsea should not let go of willian.he is still prolific, better than many others. He can still do a good 3 years for us chelsea.

  22. We still need him , release zouma and avoid defender to pair up with Rudiger and at least goal keeper

  23. Ngisi Allan | April 29, 2020 at 4:37 pm |

    I still believe Willian can do Chelsea good for about two more seasons.
    Don’t let him go!

  24. Please Frank don’t let Willian go he his agood player .

  25. What do people see in the current Willian that makes them think he is indispensable. Willian has done more than enough for Chelsea, but there’s a time for everything. It’s a rebuilding process for us and Willian has opted to go, unless the club changes its policies to suit him. No responsible club does that. Bye Willian and thanks for your past services. We already have good replacements on the ground.

  26. CHELSEA SHOULD GO TO SPAIN AND GET SAMUEL CHUKWUEZE , THAT’S IF THEY MUST LET WILLIAM GO . HE’S THE TYPE OF A LEFT ROOTED WING PLAYER THAT COULD OFFER CHELSEA WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR .

    BUT MY FIRST AND BETTER OPTION IS WILLIAM .

  27. William is seriously needed in the team

  28. This winger is too poor to replace Williams, lampard should think twice, Williams is a great player.

  29. Lyazi brian | April 30, 2020 at 7:06 am |

    Basing on experience willian is still vital for the club because much as this season has got many young stars in chelsea but seams there were cases of proving that experince is still been the better option i still see willian has got much to do us greatly

  30. Chris Dibia | April 30, 2020 at 3:01 pm |

    First of all, will all dis comments get to de Boss #Frank? If yes den he shld tink twice n mak a good replacement rather dan dis Chiesa.. Tank u

  31. Simon Baithiria | April 30, 2020 at 7:56 pm |

    We need Willian very serious, Don’t try to release This guy you will regret later, He has the Ability, skills, He is a useful tool at every moment, Release Barkely, Pendro,

  32. Ben Daniel | April 30, 2020 at 8:28 pm |

    Frank,Willian is in blood and soul a blue blood. He might have become a bit slower, but he’s a great inspiration for the youngsters. So, please do not make the mistake and let go of him. Give him at least one more season.

  33. I think allowing William to leave will be a great mistake, I called on chelsea board to look onto the situation very well
