Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian would welcome a move to Chelsea. Chelsea are pushing to land the Brazilian this week.

Willian, speaking from Sao Paulo, told The Sun: "I have friends in the Brazil side who play for Chelsea, like David and Ramires.

"All they talk about is the thrill of being in a city like London and playing for a club like Chelsea.

"I've known David since we played together in the Brazil Under-20 side and he talks about what Villas-Boas is trying to build at Chelsea. He and Ramires feel he wants a core of young players who can mature and grow together but also be successful.

"David says how the coach takes a real interest in all his players, how he can adapt different cultures together and bring the best out of them. Then obviously there is life in London. David and Ramires say there's nothing like it anywhere else in the world - it's exciting and challenging at the same time."
