Andre Villas-Boas has launched a fresh assault on Chelsea's transfer plans this summer by inquiring about Shakhtar Donetsk player Willian, reported the Daily Mail. The Brazilian has been on the Blues' radar for a long time and the 23 year-old is also keen on a move despite his club's rejection of Chelsea's previous bid for his transfer.
Willian started his career at Brazilian club Corinthians before Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk snapped up the player in 2007. The young Brazilian has since won three Ukrainian Premier League titles with the club as well as the UEFA Cup (now known as Europa League). Willian is capable of playing in a playmaker's role or wide on the wings, making him a dependable option for the Blues who are now bereft of forwards Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou.
