Chelsea to try again for Willian despite Anzhi deal

Chelsea remain keen on Brazil attacker Willian, despite his move to Anzhi.

The People says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is aiming to land Brazilian forward Willian at the second attempt in a £35million swoop.

Abramovich wants to do business with super-rich Anzhi Makhachkala for the Samba star after failing to land him from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Willian joined Anzhi last week for around £30m, with Shakhtar supremo Rinat Akhmetov refusing to sell to fellow oligarch Abramovich.

Now Abramovich will discover if Anzhi are more willing to take his cash - either in the summer or next January.
