Ian Wright believes that Willian will command a transfer fee of around £60m if he ends up leaving Chelsea FC this summer.

The Brazil international’s future has been a constant source of speculation this summer after he struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the first team under Antonio Conte last season.

Willian is now presumably waiting to see whether he features in new manager Maurizio Sarri’s plans for next season after his involvement in this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Manchester United and FC Barcelona are among the teams to have been credited with an interest in signing Willian this summer.

And former Arsenal star Wright seems to think that the Brazilian will be likely to command a transfer fee of around £60m if he does end up leaving.

Speaking in an interview on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, Wright said: “It [Willian’s price] can’t be much higher than £55m. You are at looking at that £60m area.

“It is a lot of money but it will be interesting to see if someone will pay it.

Chelsea FC will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season after they finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup last season under Conte.

The Blues have so far signed Jorginho and Rob Green as they prepare for Sarri’s first campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge.
