Willian is in talks with Fulham over shock return to the Premier League

Willian ‘is in talks with Fulham over shock return to the Premier League and former Chelsea star has a clause in his Corinthians contract that allows him to leave for a club in Europe’

Former Chelsea winger Willian could make a sensational return to west London, but to the Blues’ rivals Fulham, according to GOAL.

The 33-year-old currently plays for boyhood club Corinthians and has scored just one goal in 44 appearances for the Brazilian outfit.

Willian has 16 months remaining on his deal at the Neo Quimica Arena but has a release clause in his contract which would grant a move back to Europe.

The winger has attracted interest from several sides, including newly-promoted Fulham. It has been reported that Marco Silva’s side are already negotiating the terms of a proposed transfer.

The Brazilian enjoyed an excellent stint at Chelsea, as he won two Premier League titles with the Blues. 

Willian will have less fond memories of his spell at Arsenal though. The winger netted one goal in 35 matches, while the Gunners terminated his contract two years early.

The Brazilian would add some much-needed Premier League experience to the Cottagers as they bid to avoid a relegation battle this season.

Fabio Carvalho has already departed Fulham for Liverpool earlier in the summer, while winger Harry Wilson is set to miss the start of the season through injury.

The Cottagers have made the shrewd additions of Manor Solomon and Andreas Pereira, yet a swoop for Willian would seriously bolster the west London side’s attacking options. 

Silva’s side kick off their Premier League campaign on Saturday, when they host Community Shield winners Liverpool at Craven Cottage.
