– The Spanish champions had three bids rejected by Chelsea last summer
– Willian has been a key member of Maurizio Sarri’s unbeaten squad this term
La Liga league leaders Barcelona are willing to offer Malcom plus cash to purchase Chelsea winger Willian, Mirror quoting La Sexta.
The Spanish champions who were linked to the Brazilian playmaker in the summer, have reportedly held talks in another attempt to sign the Blues star.
Chelsea rejected three bids for the 30-year-old in the summer as well as a £55million offer which was turned down by the Stamford Bridge outfit.
Then, La Bluagrana turned to Malcom instead who had a remarkable campaign with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux last season.
The 21-year-old who was signed for £36.5million has failed to make his mark this season and has only made two substitute appearances.
And according to Spanish TV station La Sexta, the Nou Camp out are willing to trade him with his international teammate Willian during the January window.
It is understood that the Barca winger would only be a part of the deal, suggesting that it could be a player-plus-cash offer from the Spanish giants.

However, Chelsea will hold onto Willian because he has been an integral member of Maurizio Sarri’s side who are still unbeaten this season.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Premier League side Chelsea are not eager to sell star midfielder Willian to Barcelona unless the Spanish champions splash out a massive £70m for the Brazilian, according to a UK Sun report.
The West London outfit have turned down a third offer of £55m for Willian as they want more cash from the Spanish side.
