Juventus are reportedly leading the race to sign Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea when the current season concludes.

The Brazilian's contract with the Blues expires at the end of June but he has recently confirmed that he would be prepared to sign a short-term deal to complete the season, which is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 threat.

According to Tuttosport, the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing the experienced winger, who is open to the prospect of prolonging his stay in the Premier League.

He is also said to be attracting interest from overseas sides and the Bianconeri are expected to make a contract offer under the recommendation of manager Maurizio Sarri, who was the head coach at Chelsea last term.

Willian is still open to signing a new long-term deal at Stamford Bridge but there has been an impasse with the club's hierarchy reluctant to meet his demands for a three-year deal. They have offered to renew his contract for two seasons.
