Deal On!!! Barcelona to raid Chelsea for star player

Emerging reports claim that West Linson outfit Chelsea could lose another star player to Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona as they are reported to be seeking for the signature of Brazilian international Willian ahead of the summer transfer window.

Willian has been a major part of the Maurizio Sarri team this season with a regular playing time which means it is not in the wish of the Italian boss to let him leave the club.

The Spanish La Liga side are looking forward to adding strength to their attack and Willian has been identified as the player that can add strength to the team with his pace and eyes for goals.

It would be recalled that Barcelona made an attempt to sign the Brazilian winger in the last January window but they failed and this could be the time as they hope to lure the star player away.

Willian’s contract with the Blues team runs out in the coming summer window and that could mean his sale if there will be no agreement for a new deal.

So far this season, he has scored six goals and provided two assists in 31 Premier League games while he scored other three goals in the Europa League for the Blues.

However, it is suggested that the Blues team will try to keep hold of the player as they might not be able to replace him due to the transfer ban on the club which is yet to be lifted by FIFA but that will not stop Barcelona from making an attempt.
