Juventus ‘join Arsenal and Tottenham in race for Willian… but Chelsea star’s family would prefer to stay in London’
- Willian is yet to agree a new Chelsea contract with his current one winding down
- The 31-year-old will be a free agent this summer if he can’t agree a new contract
- Arsenal, Tottenham and now Juventus have all been linked with the Brazilian
The clamour for Willian is growing, with Juventus the latest suitor for the Chelsea forward, who is soon to be out of contract.
According to Italian publication Tuttosport, the Serie A giants are keen to sign the Brazilian on a free transfer this summer.
Willian’s future at Chelsea is in doubt with the player and the club yet to agree a new deal to extend his near seven-year stay there.

Yet, they add that his family are keen to stay in London – with Arsenal and Spurs interested
The 31-year-old is reportedly after a three-year contract at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues only prepared to offer him a two-year deal.
Tuttosport claim that despite Willian’s indifferent relationship with Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri, following the latter’s stint at Chelsea last season, they still maintain an interest in the winger.
However, they report that he is likely to remain in London as his family like the English capital – meaning a move to either Arsenal or Tottenham is more feasible than Juve, should he leave Frank Lampard’s side.
Willian, who has scored seven goals in 37 appearances for Chelsea across all competitions this term, is also a Bayern Munich target, they add.
