Willian has reiterated his desire to seal a move away from Shakhtar Donetsk, with Chelsea and Tottenham both interested in bringing the attacker to the Premier League.

The 24-year-old was the subject of a bid from Chelsea back in January while Andre Villas-Boas was still in charge at Stamford Bridge, and the Blues are understood to still be keen to land the Brazilian.

Spurs have also been linked with a January swoop for the midfielder since the Portuguese coach took over at White Hart Lane in the summer.

And the player himself believes he is close to sealing a move away from Donbass Arena.

“I’m very happy with my moment at the club and I intend to keep living this moment,” Willian told Globo Esporte.

“As for a possible transfer, there will be offers for sure and I work so that it happens.

“My club and my representatives will decide my future. I’m focused on helping Shakhtar to keep making history in the Champions League.”
