Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has seemingly urged the club to get a move on and offer Brazilian winger Willian a new deal after highlighting the vital role the forward has played for the Blues this time.
Willian has frequently been used in a starting role by Lampard following the Blues legend’s Stamford Bridge return earlier this year.
The Brazilian has performed 15 times for the club in all competitions so far this term, numbers that show just how much of a first-team role the player is set to have under Lampard this year.
The 31-year-old has been in good form of late, bagging a combined five goals and assists in his last six Premier League outings, a run that has convinced Lampard to call for the club to hand him a new contract.
As per the club’s official website, Lampard was asked about Willian’s contract situation, with the Blues manager then stating that “I can’t get involved in the money, that’s up to the club, but I think everyone sees from what I’m saying, and I’m relying on him and picking him, and he’s producing, I love him at this football club”.
Willian’s contract ends at the end of this campaign as per the Metro. Thus the Brazilian will be able to open talks with a foreign clubs come January 1st should he fail to agree on a new agreement with the Blues between now and then.
