Chelsea Playmaker Willian Is Reportedly Showing Interest Over A Summer Move To Liverpool

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent print edition of Sport (via Sport Witness), Chelsea wide player Willian is currently locked in discussions over a potential move to Liverpool during the summer transfer window. The same source has also mentioned that the Brazilian playmaker’s free-agent status could mean that he could get a lucrative contract at Anfield. It is believed that he will be given ‘very favourable conditions’ if he does decide to seal a move to Merseyside when the transfer window reopens later this year (via Sport).

Chelsea Ace Willian Wants To Make Move To Liverpool

Sport Witness has also added that the main story in the report from Sport contains information about Philippe Coutinho’s future. So the fact that both Brazilian midfielders share the agent in Sport Invest UK Ltd. makes it a possibility that Willian’s news must have slipped out along with the main story surrounding Coutinho.

Willian was enjoying another productive season at Stamford Bridge before the football world came to a standstill because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak. The former Corinthians maestro has flourished playing under Frank Lampard during this campaign and has excelled as a playmaker down the right flank. He has scored seven goals and provided six assists in 37 matches for the West London giants this term in all competitions.

The 31-year-old has also averaged 1.6 shots, 1.8 key passes and 2.1 dribbles per game in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League this season (stats via whoscored). Therefore, it is no wonder that he is still in such high demand, especially because he will be available for free when his contract runs out at Chelsea at the end of this campaign.

Willian might still have a lot to offer in the English top-flight despite edging closer towards the twilight years of his playing career. So a high-profile summer switch to Liverpool could offer him a chance to win a few more trophies before he decides to hang up his boots and ride into the sunset with his head held high in a few years’ time.
