Brazilian winger Willian could leave Chelsea in January, with Juventus said to be monitoring developments.
The 31-year old is out of contract next summer, and although he has been offered a new two year deal, there is no sign that he is close to signing it at the moment. With the player free to talk to foreign clubs in January, Chelsea may be tempted to cash in on the player in the New Year, rather than allow him to leave for free at the end of the season.
Willian has yet to start a Premier League match this season, although he has made three appearances for the club from the bench, with his pre-season preparations hampered by returning late to West London after playing for Brazil in the Copa América earlier in the summer.
Manager Frank Lampard has previously indicated that he wants to keep Willian at Stamford Bridge, although the Brazilian has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the past.
