Former Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola acknowledges stars like Eden Hazard and Willian were ‘bored’ by Maurizio Sarri’s training drills.

Juventus watch for Willian

Juventus are ready to pounce if Willian leaves Chelsea as a free agent this summer, suggest reports in Italy.

The Brazilian has been at Stamford Bridge since 2013, but his contract is due to expire at the end of the season and he has been unable to agree a new deal.

He is after a three-year contract, something that the Bianconeri would be prepared to offer.

According to Sport Mediaset, Juve are eager to take advantage of another free agent situation after already swooping for Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot last year.

Juventus have long been interested in signing the Brazilian, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old is reportedly keen to stay in London due to family reasons, but during an interview with Esporte Interativo, Willian painted a less than positive picture.

Boga: 'Hazard not better than me'

Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga has “no regrets” at leaving Chelsea and insists teammates Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian “were not better than me.”

The 22-year-old was sold for just €3m in 2018, although Chelsea do retain a buy-back option should he move on in future.

So far this season, Boga has contributed four goals – including a stunning lob against Juventus – and two assists in 13 Serie A games.

Mircea Lucescu advised Juventus to make a move for Chelsea winger Willian, claiming "the Bianconeri would be ideal for him."

“The Bianconeri would be ideal for him.”

Willian has already spoken of his relief at seeing Conte leave Chelsea, and the Brazilian forward went a step further by making clear the former Italy CT was too restrictive compared to new boss Sarri.
