Liverpool in ‘favourable negotiations’ with Chelsea star Willian

Chelsea star Willian is in talks with Liverpool over a shock move, according to reports.

The Brazilian is out of contract in a matter of months and talks with the west London side have come to a halt.

Willian was keen to sign a three-year extension, but Chelsea were only prepared to table two.

It has seen the 31-year-old consider his options and the Reds have emerged as a surprise front runner, reports Sport.

Willian has been in London since 2013 and is keen to stay in England leading to negotiations with the Premier League champions elect.

It is understood that discussions with Liverpool have gone well as they eye new recruits.

Jurgen Klopp's attacking options are thin and injuries to any of the established front three would be a cause for concern.

That coupled with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah's involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations midway through next season.

Chelsea are thought to be interest in former Red Philippe Coutinho as well as Jadon Sancho.

The Blues face competition from Manchester United for the latter, although current club Borussia Dortmund are keen to retain his services.
