Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in Chelsea attacker Willian.
According to Sky Sports, the French champions are eyeing a late bid for the 30-year-old on Deadline Day and are trying to find a replacement for Neymar following his injury setback.
It is understood that PSG are looking to bring somebody in, as they will be without talisman Neymar for the Champion League last-16 tie with Manchester United.
The report details that the Blues don’t want to sell the Brazilian this month and he still has 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Willian, who earns £120,000-a-week (Spotrac), often divides fans due to his inconsistent display.
It’s unclear on how much PSG would be willing to offer for him, but it would surely have to be a monumental fee to convince Chelsea to offload him with so little time left in the January window.
The right-winger has scored scored seven goals and supplied six assists across all competitions this season, while he’s a speed demon that is hard to deal with when he’s on form.
But there have been too many occasions when he’s failed to provide a spark in the final third and he may not be the long-term solution under Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea should at least keep hold of Willian until the end of the season, when Christian Pulisic will arrive from Borussia Dortmund.
