Chelsea are maintaining interest in Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Willian. Willian has been recommended to Chelsea by transfers adviser Piet de Visser and remains a target after enquiries were made before the January market.

Should Blues owner Roman Abramovich make concrete his interest, he will need to see off competition from AC Milan.

The Rossoneri have already been in contact with Willian's camp and been informed of Chelsea's rival interest.
