With Pedro on the way in, Chelsea are willing to dump one of their less productive wingers to make room for him and get some cash back – namely, Willian.
According to the Metro, Chelsea have reached out to Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain about a possible deal for the 27-year-old Brazilian winger.
The Metro reported that both of the UEFA giants are believed to have significant interest in Willian, but Paris Saint-Germain may struggle to make room on the roster for him. Willian is the second winger to reportedly be on the market with Juan Cuadrado believed to be ready for a loan move to Juventus.
Chelsea acquired Willian on a £32 million transfer out of Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2013 and scored 4 goals in each of his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge.
Though Willian is widely-regarded as a hard worker for Jose Mourinho, his lack of scoring ability makes him easily replaceable now that Pedro is reportedly coming in from Barcelona.
The Blues reportedly reached an agreement for the versatile scoring threat earlier today, undercutting efforts by bitter-rival Man United to land the 28-year-old forward/winger. The signing has not been made official yet however.
