Barca 'Ready To Launch £50 Million Player-Plus Cash Bid' For Willian

Willian on the other hand has been a consistent fixture in the Chelsea team under Maurizio Sarri, appearing in all but one of their Premier League outings thus far. The final offer worth more than £55m was rejected in July.

Malcom joined the Spanish side in summer after controversially pulling out of a proposed move to Roma at the eleventh hour.

Valverde wanted the Brazil man then after his impressive display in the Champions League last season.

Sky Sports are reporting that the five time European Cup winners have offered a player plus cash deal, with winger Malcom heading to Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis.

Even though Willian has just turned 30 and only has 18 months left on his current contract Chelsea value him higher than the proposal that was put to them by Barcelona representatives on Thursday.

However, the Blues are reluctant to sell any of their attacking players this window, particularly with uncertainty around the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi, who is a target of Bayern Munich.

The American is expected to replace Hazard in the summer.

Chelsea have already signed Christian Pulisic this month before loaning him back to Borussia Dortmund until the end of the season.
