?Barcelona are considering yet another move for Chelsea winger Willian as they look to add depth (or rather, depth that isn't Malcom) to their wings.

Barcelona have tried to sign him on at least one occasion in the past, offering a cash-plus-Malcom deal worth something around £55m.

The Spanish league leaders struggle for starters out wide beyond €100m+ signings Philippe Coutinho, who has been a huge disappointment since arriving, and Ousmane Dembele, who has not – with ?The Telegraph reporting that the Blues veteran is in their sights once again.

Willian, meanwhile, showed Valverde's side glimpses of his talent last season at Stamford Bridge – toying with the Catalan side's defence and scoring in a Champions League round of 16 first leg, while also hitting the post twice.

?Lionel Messi nominally starts on the right but isn't a winger by any conventional definition of the word, leaving ?Barça short of real width.

The Brazilian's age – he turns 31 at the start of next season – means that ?Chelsea are unlikely to renew him for more than a further year, unless their appeal to defer a transfer ban this summer fails and forces them to alter their long-held principle of only giving players over the age of 30 single-year deals.

Willian's arrival would mean the end of Malcom's spell at Camp Nou, with a loan move for the Corinthians product most likely as the club look to get him playing regularly after a season warming the bench in Catalunya.
