Juventus are reportedly looking into a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea winger Willian when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.

The Bianconeri have followed the trend of signing high-profile players on Bosman deals and they recently recruited the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serie A holders are keeping a close eye on the contract situation of Willian and they could propose a pre-contract agreement when he enters the final six months of his deal in January.

Willian started the season on the substitutes' bench but he has recently evolved into a key player under Frank Lampard with starts against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool.

He has recently indicated that he would prefer to extend his contract with the Blues but so far, there has been no proposal from the west London giants, who are focused on sorting out the futures of the younger players.

Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have already penned new long-term deals with the Blues and Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori could soon follow.
