Barcelona have reportedly earmarked Chelsea winger Willian as a potential target when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Brazil international is currently in his seventh campaign with the Blues but there is the uncertainty regarding his future with his contract expiring in nine months' time.

According to Sport, the Blaugrana are keeping a close eye on the player's situation and they could make a renewed attempt to sign him at the turn of the year.

Willian has recently stated that he would prefer to extend his deal with the Blues but so far, there has been no progress with respect to the contract extension.

Still, the Blues are fancied to open contract talks with Willian in the coming months with manager Frank Lampard still regarding the attacker as a key part of his plans.

Willian has started the last three Premier League games for the Blues. He scored his first goal of the season during the 2-0 triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
