Juventus are reportedly plotting a summer move for Chelsea winger Willian, who will become a free agent at the end of the season
The Brazilian forward has refused to extend his deal with the Blues for another year, sending Juventus a signal to make a move at the end of the ongoing campaign.
As reported by ESPN, the reigning Serie A champions will make an approach in the summer if the 31-year-old remains adamant he won’t sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
The Turin giants have showcased their skill at luring free agents to the Allianz Stadium on multiple occasions in the past, with Emre Can, Aaron Ramsey, and Adrien Rabiot the latest examples.
Willian’s experience in international competitions makes him even more desirable, especially considering Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa both continue to struggle for form and consistency.
Willan has been a permanent fixture in Franck Lampard’s squad this season, racking up 24 Premier League appearances and contributing four goals and four assists.
Also, Juventus’ path to the Brazil international is clear now that Barcelona pulled out of the race and Chelsea brought in Hakim Ziyech from Ajax for a reported fee of £33.36 plus add-ons.
