- Willian of Chelsea has emerged as a summer transfer target for Barcelona
- Barcelona have previously made two attempts to sign the Brazil international
- Willian's current contract at Stamford Bridge runs until next summer
After two failed attempts to sign Brazilian star Willian from Chelsea, Spanish champions Barcelona are reportedly planning for another move this summer.
During the last January transfer window, Barcelona tried all they could to get the signature of Willian, but Chelsea refused to do any business with the Catalans.
Barcelona were even said to have offered a player Malcom for the possibility of signing Willian, but all their efforts were futile.
However, the La Liga leaders are set to reignite their interest in Willian this summer and could make a cut-price move for the Brazil international according to UK Sun.
Willian's current contract at Stamford Bridge runs until next summer and Chelsea could be tempted to cash-in on the star rather than risk losing him for a free.
“I have one year left, but of course I want to play for this club. I don’t know if they want me, but of course I want to continue here,'' Willian said to reporters earlier this year.
Willian and his teammates at Chelsea are currently occupying fourth position on the Premier League standings with 66 points after 33 games.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Chelsea star Willian is upbeat compatriot David Luiz will reach an agreement with club chiefs and extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.
According to the report, Luiz’s current deal at west London expires at the end of the current campaign and Chelsea are not keen offering the 31-year-old Luiz more than 12-month extension, as it is the club’s policy.
