Brazil worldwide Willian was the subject of strong speculation in pre-season, with Barcelona reportedly having offers for him rejected.

Chelsea have chose to reject Barcelona's stunning £50million player-plus-cash offer for Willian, according to the UK Telegraph. The Blaugrana had offered Malcom along with cash with the deal valued at around £50m but it has been rejected by the Blues. The 21-year-old Brazilian attacker signed for Barcelona in the summer in a transfer worth £37 million.

It is believed the LaLiga leaders are now ready to offer €42 million (R669 million) plus Malcom for the Chelsea winger.

"No, because I have the option with Hazard in this position", said Sarri earlier this month when asked about signing a centre forward.

"I think he can do better, because the potential is higher, but he's very important for us, so I think it's impossible to lose him in January". You have to ask the club. "He has the potential to score more".

Chelsea have already signed Christian Pulisic this month before loaning him back to Borussia Dortmund until the end of the season.

"Of course, if he goes to another club we need a replacement, it's normal", the Italian added.

"At the moment, for his mental condition, he is not able to play I think".
