The Giallorosso are already in talks with Blues teammate and fellow Bosman prospect Pedro – and are now making a move for Willian.
Corriere dello Sport says contact has been made with Willian’s camp and Roma have been informed he wants €5m-a-year – as a base – to move.
The Brazil international is also in talks with London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal about next season.
Staying with Chelsea appears remote, with management refusing to meet Willian’s demands of a new three-year contract. Their latest offer is for two.
