JUVENTUS have reportedly set their sights on signing Chelsea star Willian on a free transfer this summer.
The Brazilian has attracted a wide range of interest as his contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire at the end of the season.
According to the Express, the Italian giants are the latest club to join the race for the 31-year-old’s signature.
Chelsea have reportedly offered Willian a one-year extension in a desperate bid to fend off interest from other clubs.
But the former Shakhtar Donetsk star is said to want a two-year deal and an increase on his £110,000-a-week wages.
If he does not sign on the dotted line before the end of the season, Willian will be available on a free agent.
The Italian side have also signed the likes of Emre Can, Dani Alves, Gianluigi Buffon and Sami Khedira on free deals.
But Maurizio Sarri’s side will not be alone in their pursuit for the Chelsea star.
