Odds slashed on Liverpool's move for Chelsea star Willian
Well there's a new and interesting rumour, apparently Chelsea's star Brazilian midfielder Willian has apparently been in talks with LFC over a move.
On top of that, the odds of him moving to Liverpool have been slashed in the last hour from 12/1 to 5/1 at 888Sport.com.
It follows an earlier report which stated that Willian was keen on a very 'favourable' offer from Liverpool to join the club once his Chelsea contract expires this year.
The claims suggest that, with the midfielder being on a free, he earn himself a very good contract. As Liverpool are due to lose Adam Lallana, and potentially one or two other senior players, there will be slots opening up across the team.
On paper, it may seem like a strange one, with FSG not having been keen in the past to sign older players. But given that Willian is free, has a lot of high level experience and would undoubtedly be an upgrade on Lallana, it really does make sense.
As to whether it's just another case of little news creating interesting transfer stories, remains to be seen, really.
