Chelsea news: Juventus plots Willian transfer but Maurizio Sarri holds the key – EXCLUSIVE | Football | sport


Juventus are ready to try Willian away from Chelsea at the end of the season. The 31-year-old Brazilian has not yet signed the new one-year contract proposed by the Blues, and will be a free agent this summer, unless a new agreement is reached.
The Chelsea winger wants a two-year deal and the two sides disagree - but Juventus are long-term fans of Willian and are monitoring his situation closely.The Serie A giants have also investigated Willian this summer, but the Brazilian is not a fan of working with Maurizio Sarri - who left Stamford Bridge to take over from Juve at the end of last season.

However, Sarri is under pressure after recent poor results, with Coppa Italia's first leg semi-final last night at AC Milan ending 1-1 after another unimpressive performance, making it a victory in four games. - and there is more and more speculation that he could leave at the end of this campaign.

Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech's signing this week has given Chelsea manager Frank Lampard more options in his wide positions for next season.

The Moroccan international’s decision was confirmed yesterday, with Chelsea paying £ 33.36 million, which could reach £ 36.7 million. He will join them on July 1.

He said: "The Chelsea Football Club has signed an agreement with Ajax to sign Hakim Ziyech this summer.

"The move is subject to the player's personal terms and will remain at the Dutch club for the rest of this season. "

The signing means that Willian’s future is uncertain at Stamford Bridge as Frank Lampard seeks to shape his team.

The former West Ham goalkeeper believes that signing Ziyech could also cause problems for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

"I like it, given his age and experience," he said of the Ajax winger’s signature.

"But then you look at who Chelsea has in Willian and Hudson-Odoi.

"Again, given what we have seen from Ajax, I would try one of their players.

"But that poses a real problem for you with Hudson-Odoi.

"Willian has been linked to a remoteness, but he is still a player I would like to have on my team.

"This poses a problem for Frank Lampard, but these are problems that managers want to have."
