Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he’s hopeful Chelsea will agree a contract extension with Brazilian attacker Willian.
The No.10 is yet to agree a contract extension with the Blues and his current deal expires at the end of the season.
The Brazilian has scored three Premier League goals since the restart, and has started 32 games in all competitions for the club this season.
“I haven’t given up hope on it,” Lampard said.
“The club are still in discussions with him. We want him to stay at the club, but I also appreciate this contract for him is a big deal because of his age and where he’s at.
“I’ve been there before myself, and I respect that. The way he’s playing at the minute, he’s shown his worth to the squad.
“It’s something I hope we can get to, whatever way with Willian, he’s been a great servant to the club, if we can get it I’ll be happy, but if not I’ll certainly wish him well because I’ve got a lot of time for him. It’s ongoing, in short.”
