Juventus are weighing up a summer move for Chelsea's contract rebel Willian.

The 31-year-old's current deal at Stamford Bridge runs out at the end of the season and he has continually stalled on penning fresh terms with the Blues.

Barcelona bid £60million for the Brazilian playmaker in the summer of 2018, which was rejected by Chelsea , and were linked with a cut-price £20m swoop last month.

But according to the Express, it is Italian giants Juve and not Barca who appear to be stepping up their interest in the midfielder.

It is understood that Chelsea are only offering Willian a one-year contract extension but the midfielder is holding out for a two-year deal.

A year after Barca's eye-watering big-money bid, Juve enquired about the player's availability last summer but a move failed to materialise.

However the Italians are ready to tempt him away from west London - however a stumbling block could be under-pressure Juve boss Maurizio Sarri.

Willian, it is claimed, is not a huge fan of Sarri's managerial style having worked with the Italian at Chelsea - but the manager faces an uncertain future and has been linked with an exit in the summer.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have agreed a deal for the £33.3million summer signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.

The Blues must now confirm personal terms with the Morocco winger, who will join Chelsea on July 1.

Both Chelsea and Ajax confirmed the deal, with Frank Lampard securing his first signing as Stamford Bridge boss.

Lampard and Chelsea were unable to make any headway on recruitment in the January transfer window, leaving the new boss frustrated not to bolster his squad.

Ziyech was one of Lampard's top targets however, and the Blues have moved quickly to lock down a deal for the 26-year-old, that should represent excellent value considering market constraints.

"Chelsea Football Club has reached an agreement with Ajax to sign Hakim Ziyech this summer," read a Chelsea statement.

"The move is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and he will remain at the Dutch club for the rest of this season."
