Juventus to swoop for experienced Chelsea attacker?

Willian to Juventus?

Juventus will reportedly seek to reach a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea winger Willian when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.

The Brazil international has been with the Blues for the past six years and he has not been able to establish himself as a regular under manager Frank Lampard this term.

According to The Mail, the Bianconeri are keeping a close eye on the proceedings of the attacker and they could make an attempt to sign him on a pre-contract deal in January.

Willian has just 11 months remaining on his current contract and so far, there has been no indication that he would be prepared to commit his future to the west London giants.

Willian, who has made nearly 300 appearances for Chelsea, has only received gametime from the bench with Mason Mount preferred for the attacking midfield role under Lampard.

Even then, his performances have been far from convincing and there are suggestions that the winger could be offloaded for a nominal fee when the transfer window reopens in four months' time.
