Willian keen on Chelsea move

Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian has indicated he would relish the chance to join Chelsea.

Ancelotti: Blues not chasing Neymar

Willian, 22, is reported to have attracted the interest of Barcelona and Chelsea after his performances for Shakhtar in the Champions League, including a brace in the recent 3-0 win over Roma.

The former Brazil Under-20 international's contract is due to expire in 2012 but, as he has a £25 million release clause, interested parties could make the move this summer.

"[Chelsea's interest] makes me happy, but there is nothing concrete as yet," he told R7. "There is no offer. It makes me happy, though, because it means my efforts are receiving recognition.

"There are some Brazilians there and they have great players. Chelsea are a big club in England."

Willian also said that he would love to link up with 19-year-old Santos forward Neymar should he make the move to Stamford Bridge.

"Neymar is a great player," he said. "Despite his age, he is already showing he has a lot of quality. It would be great to play with him - he's doing brilliantly at the moment."
