Another Chelsea Star Set For Shock Chinese Move Amidst Costa Speculation




Chelsea may lose another player after reports that Willian could set for a surprise move to the Chinese Super League.

Following the departure of Oscar and Mikel to the Chinese Super League, it has emerged that Willian is the latest Blues player to be targeted by clubs in the Far East.

A host of high-profile stars have left for lucrative deals in China in the recent weeks much to the dismay of European clubs.

Diego Costa has also been linked with a move to Tianjin Quanjin following his spat with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and there are speculations that the 28-year-old striker has told friends he will not be signing a new contract at the Stamford Bridge despite Chelsea’s advances to tie him to a new deal.

Reports in the Telegraph have it that Willian is also a potential target by Chinese Super League clubs as he has been a bit-part player for the Blues with 19 appearances this season.

Despite his reduced role at Chelsea, the Brazilian star has shown glimpses of his quality anytime he is being called upon by Antonoio Conte.

In related news, Chelsea have recalled Patrick Bamford from his dissappointing loan spell with Burnley where he managed just 33 minutes of action since he joined next summer. Meanwhile, Lucas Piazon has announced he has signed an extension to his loan deal with Fulham after impressing with the Whites coring four goals in 17 appearances in all competitions.
