Barcelona may turn their attentions towards Chelsea winger Willian if they fail to sign Liverpool’s Phillipe Coutinho, according to Goal.
Coutinho was poised to go to the Catalan club in the summer but a fee between Barcelona and Liverpool couldn’t be agreed.
Barca are expected to continue their quest to sign Coutinho but will look at fellow Brazilian Willian who could offer a cheaper alternative.
What does Willian’s future at Chelsea hold?
Willian has enjoyed the last week scoring a brace against Qarabag in the Champions League. Most recently, he scored the equalising goal against Liverpool at Anfield.
However, the player has struggled to get regular game time under manager Antonio Conte this season.
Brazilian website UOL, reported last week that the player may leave Chelsea soon unless the Italian departs.
The future of the player is in the balance and a move to Barcelona may be too hard for Willian to turn down.
