Juventus have made contact with Chelsea over a move for Willian in the January transfer window.
The Brazilian winger’s contract expires in the summer so he is free to talk to foreign clubs in January.
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to be reunited with Willian, who played under him at Chelsea last season, as he believes the 31-year-old can boost his side in their nailbiting title battle against Inter Milan at the top of the Serie A table.
But Willian has told friends that he would prefer to stay at Chelsea rather than work under Sarri.
Willian has made big improvements working under Frank Lampard this season, and Chelsea are not keen to sell him.
