Juventus are considering a move for Brazil international Willian as he enters the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Although the 31-year-old is still one of Chelsea’s most important players he’s set to leave on a free transfer next summer, something which Tuttosport believes the Serie A champions are closely monitoring.
Willian is not interested in extending his contract with Chelsea, while Pedro, Olivier Giroud and most notably Callum Hudson-Odoi are also entering the last year of their deals.
Having built up a reputation over the last few years for snapping up players on pre-contract agreements, Juve are now looking to make Willian their latest free transfer.
Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot, Emre Can and Sami Khedira are among players who have all moved to Turin on free transfers in recent years.
Chelsea could have one hand tied behind their back when it comes to negotiations with Willian as they’re still in the midst of a transfer ban.
Allowing the Brazil international to leave, however, will mean Christian Pulisic can move into his natural position on the right-wing.
