Willian is on the verge of leaving Chelsea this summer, despite Antonio Conte no longer at the club.
Report from The Sun claimed the Brazilian international has his heart set on leaving Chelsea this summer, despite the club’s appointment Maurizio Sarri.
Barcelona, who are keen on signing him this summer, have lodged a £60m offer and the winger is reportedly in talks with international team-mate Philippe Coutinho about the prospect of moving to the Nou Camp.
However, in such a scenario the Brazilian leaves Chelsea, who would Chelsea be signing as his replacement ? There have been many players touted with a move to Stamford Bridge but one who looks likely to join the FA Cup holders is Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha – who earns £100,000-per-week as per The Independent.
According to reports, the Ivory Coast international has told the club that he wants a move away to ply his trade with a bigger team in the league and his asking price is reportedly set at £70m so getting £60m for Willian would make a deal very doable, and it would mean that the Ivory Coast international would not need to leave London
Zaha, has more potential playing in Sarri’s 4-3-3 attacking playing style and he would flourish superbly under the Italian gaffer tutelage.
There would be a new breath of attack in Chelsea’s attacking front with Zaha and Eden Hazard to kickstart their new era, although this will depend on whether Chelsea’s keep Hazard this summer or not.
