Willian has revealed that he is in talks with Chelsea over a new contract and is keen for his future to be resolved ‘very soon’.

The 31-year-old is in his seventh season at Stamford Bridge after he was signed from Anzhi Makhachkala for £30 million in 2013.

Willian’s current contract expires next summer, while the Brazil international has been linked with a move to Juventus.

But the midfielder has now indicated that his preference is to remain at Chelsea.

‘I have stated several times my wish is to stay at Chelsea,’ Willian told Yahoo Sport.

‘I like the club very much, I feel very welcomed here, as well as my family, and we love living in London.

‘However, I’m in the middle of the season and I try not to think about it so as not to lose focus on the field.

‘My agent and the club are talking and I hope we can have some good news soon.

‘In transfer windows it is normal to have bids and speculations, especially for players who are in final contract.

‘But my focus is 100 per cent on Chelsea and the season.’
