Juventus are considering a move for Chelsea forward Willian but may have to wait until the summer to get the Brazilian.
The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is yet to agree to an extended stay at Stamford Bridge.
His availability has alerted clubs around Europe, including Barcelona, and Juventus are apparently among them.
Sport Mediaset report that Juventus Sporting Director Fabio Paratici was recently in London and one of his aims was to explore the possibility of signing the Chelsea forward.
The website reports that Willian has blocked off negotiations about a new contract at Stamford Bridge and wants to ‘choose his next destination’.
His next deal is likely to be his last big contract, and he wants ‘further adjustment’ on the €6.5m he is currently making.
Juventus are keen as manager Maurizio Sarri is a big fan. He used Willian 32 times at Chelsea last season and bringing him to Italy would mean he could return to his favoured 4-3-3 formation.
The Juve boss would be happy to get the player in January, but that seems unlikely as Willian ‘enjoys the trust of Frank Lampard’ meaning a summer move is more likely.
