Chelsea boss desperate to offer new contract to Brazilian forward

Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to find a solution to over Willian’s situation at the club, with Tottenham circling the Brazilian forward, according to the reports.

The 31-year old is out of his current deal at the end of the current campaign and he has yet to negotiate with the team chiefs over a new contract, having come to an impasse in talks with the West London club.

Standard Sport reports that while Brazilian forward keen on to remain in West London club for the foreseeable future, he is demanding a contract that would tie him at least for two years at the club, while he keen on to increase on his £110,000 per week salary.

Meanwhile, the report suggested that the Blues have only offered a one-year extension, and as such a number of teams are now keeping tabs on the winger’s situation, including Barcelona, AC Milan, Tottenham and Juventus.

The Spurs previously missed out on securing the services of Willian when he joined the West London club from Anzhi Makhachkala back in 2013, and Jose Mourinho now wants to secure the services of the New White Hart Lane.

Mourinho had previously wanted to sign Brazilian forward for Manchester United, only for team chiefs to then refuse to sanction a move, while player himself has spoken in the past about how he would like to work with Portuguese manager once again.

Lampard considers South American forward to be a key player for his team, with only Kepa Arrizabalaga and Mason Mount having played more Premier League matches than former Anzhi forward or Chelsea this campaign, and he is desperate to keep his experience in his team.
