Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian: I'm ready for Chelsea move

Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian feels he's ready to make the move to Chelsea.

He now feels it is time to test himself in the Premier League.

He told The Sun: "I wouldn't have any fears about coming to England because I have played against English sides in the Champions League and studied the English game. To play in a league that is seen throughout the world would be good for my hopes of playing regularly for Brazil, especially with the World Cup at home in two years' time. That is my aim. I've worked hard for four years to establish myself in the national team.

"It has taken that long but now I feel I have a good relationship with the coach and I want to keep working hard, so I remain in the side. There are times when you look at your life and realise how lucky you've been.

"I've played for a great club in Corinthians and been successful. I moved to Shakhtar and that turned into a great move too. There was talk about Barcelona and Arsenal before but now Chelsea are interested.

"If the next step of the adventure is England, then I would be excited by that."
