Reports surfacing tonight from Lancenet are suggesting that Shaktar winger Willian, is close to becoming a Chelsea player.

They claim that the player has missed the last two matches, due to being in negotiations with Chelsea. Chelsea are close to offering the desired value by Shaktar.

We have been linked with the 23-year-old Brazilian attacker before and Chelsea are high admirers of him, this is no secret. With the Hulk rumours died down, Chelsea are still looking to bring in another winger and Willian is also keen on Chelsea.

We will see how this one pans out and if anything comes from these fresh new rumours. I know the signing of Willian excites many Chelsea supporters.

He has scored 18 goals for Shaktar and is also a Brazilian international. He’s a quick player with great skill, very typically Brazilian.
