There are fears that English Premier League outfit Chelsea will lose one of their most prized assets on this January winter transfer deadline day with reports that French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain are planning a shock raid for Chelsea winger Willian, according to Sky sources.

The Ligue 1 champions have been confirmed to be without Brazilian international Neymar and they are already shopping for his replacement.

Neymar suffered a metatarsal injury which will keep him out of both legs of their Champions League last-16 meeting with English Premier League side Manchester United.

Willian is also known to be seeking a move away from the West London side having learnt of interest from a number of top European sides including Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and the Chinese Super League.

With 18 months left in the contract if the 30-year-old Brazilian playmaker, the West London outfit are still interested in having Willian around as they hope to continue the fight for a top four finish.

However, there are suggestions that the Blues will sanction a move for the Brazilian international at the end of the season as they have already secured Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic who will be joining the club ahead of the coming season.
