WILLIAN has emerged as a top transfer target for Bayern Munich.
The Chelsea star is being eyed up by the German giants as a deal for Alexis Sanchez continues to drag on.
Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti is plotting to splash the cash this summer to replace his ageing stars in the long-term.
Arjen Robben turns 34 on his next birthday whilst Franck Ribery is also aged 34.
Both players were seen as integral figures in Bayern’s title winning success last season but Ancelotti is plotting for the future.
Speed merchant Douglas Costa is also rumoured to be on his way with Italian giants Juventus interested in landing his signature.
And according to German publication abendzeitung, the Bavaria side are monitoring Willian who made 15 Premier League starts last season.
But with a contract penned at Stamford Bridge until 2020, he could cost in the region of £43million.
Manchester United have been linked with a switch for Willian but the Blues are unlikely to sell to a Premier League rival.
