Chelsea to offer Willian a new contract to fend off European interest

Chelsea are stepping up their bid to tie Willian down to a new deal after PSG and Bayern Munich registered their interest in the forward.

The Brazilian has been one of the only players to impress for the Blues this season and has scored five goals in all competitions.

Talks of a new contract have already begun between the two parties but, according to Tom Hopkinson of the Sunday People, via the Mirror, interest from the Continent has forced Chelsea to move fast.

Chelsea currently languish in 16th place in the Premier League table and Willian's form has been one of few bright points for the Stamford Bridge club. 

The former Anzhi Makhachkala winger is under contract at the Bridge until 2018 so would command a big fee if he decided to leave, but the west London club would be hard pressed to part with the 27-year-old.

Willian was one of Chelsea's best performers at the Britannia Stadium but was unable to stop the Blues losing their seventh league game of the season.

Eden Hazard's form has been a cause for concern in west London and he shows no sign of returning to his dizzy heights of the 2014/15 season. 

Where Hazard has gone backwards, Willian has emphatically stepped forwards and tried, in vain, to take the bull by the horns.

The possibility of Chelsea missing out on Champions League qualification is very real. However, a mass exodus would not be expected if the Blues do fall short. But the pull of Bayern or PSG could prove tempting for the Brazilian winger.
