Juventus line up Willian transfer but Chelsea star ‘is not first choice’ for Maurizio Sarri’s side – The Sun

JUVENTUS are gearing up to prise Willian away from Chelsea with the hotshot winger entering the final months of his current contract at the club.
But the Brazilian, who's highly regarded by former Blues boss Maurizio Sarri, may have to fight for a starting should he move to Italy.

Calciomercato claim Willian, who has won two Premier League titles at Chelsea, has been flirting with the Italian giants currently managed by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

Willian, 31, who scored the Blues' third goal in their 4-0 win against Everton today, has rejected a new contract offer from Chelsea.

The Stamford Bridge star is after a three-year deal to stay in London, while officials at the club are only willing to make a two-year offer.

One top four rival to Frank Lampard's team is considering a move for the Brazilian international.

There's speculation that Tottenham could join the race for Willian's signature in a deal which would see the star renunited with former boss Jose Mourinho.

The former Blues manager signed Willian for Chelsea then after he was on the verge of a move to White Hart Lane, and the pair won the Premier League title in 2015.
