Chelsea boss Sarri needs to get rid of Willian and replace him with £40.5m-rated star – agree?

In recent transfer windows Willian has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, but he has remained loyal so far.

The Brazilian winger has been part of the fold at Stamford Bridge since 2013, but in recent seasons he has had a hit-and-miss relationship with the fans.

According to a report from La Sexta, Barcelona still hold an interest in Willian despite failing to agree a deal with Chelsea in the summer.

It is believed that current Blues boss Maurizio Sarri wanted to keep the Brazilian, who has featured in all 11 of the club’s Premier League matches, starting nine of them.

The report states that Barcelona are willing to include Malcom in a swap deal as they are unhappy with the winger’s efforts in training.

The winger, who is valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, has only made three appearances for the Catalan giants this season.

With all of that in mind, would 21-year-old Malcom be a better option than Willian for Sarri, or is the latter a key part of the Chelsea team?

Let us know by voting below.

Absolute no-brainer: 71% of Everton fans polled think £13.5m-rated is much better than Ramsey

Next summer could see a scramble for Aaron Ramsey’s signature as he is expected to leave Arsenal.

According to a recent report in the London Evening Standard, the Gunners have no plans to offer the midfielder a new contract.

An initial deal was on the table but after the two parties failed to reach an agreement, it was withdrawn.

Ramsey’s contract expires next summer, which means that he will become a free agent at the end of the season.

Everton could be one of the club’s interested depending on what happens with Andre Gomes.

The midfielder – valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt – moved to Goodison Park from Barcelona in the summer, but he is only on a season-long loan deal.

It is unclear whether the Toffees will be able to secure a permanent arrangement, but the fans have certainly been impressed with his early performances.

Amid all the speculation relating to Ramsey’s future, we asked you who would be a better fit in Marco Silva’s team, and the majority have picked Gomes.

'A very good upgrade and we can sell Walcott' – Many Everton fans debate surprise Barcelona move

Malcom was a prominent name in the transfer headlines during the summer as he was linked to numerous Premier League clubs.

In the end, though, the Brazil international ended up joining Barcelona from Bordeaux, but there have been rumblings that 21-year-old is not entirely happy at the Camp Nou.

On Wednesday it was reported by Mundo Deportivo that Malcom wants to leave the club due to a lack of game time.

The player has since denied the speculation, but it has led some Everton fans to begin a discussion on Reddit regarding the situation.

Manager Marco Silva added to the midfield and wide areas during the summer transfer window.

However, some supporters are not satisfied with Theo Walcott’s contributions this season and see Malcom as an ideal replacement.

Others, though, think that bringing in the Brazilian would be pointless as it is not an area that the club need to strengthen.

Malcom has only made three appearances in all competitions for the Catalan giants so far.

In total, the winger has only played 25 minutes of action in La Liga.

'Be prepared to be shocked' … These Liverpool fans react to reports that came out of nowhere

The managerial job at Real Madrid is one of the biggest in football, and it is currently up for grabs.

Plenty of fans of other clubs, including Liverpool’s following, have been speculating over who will take the hotseat at the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos are hunting for a new leader after sacking Julen Lopetegui, who lost the Spain head coach job and the Madrid role inside four months.

One surprise contender for the position has emerged in the form of Belgium national team boss Roberto Martinez.

Sky Sports News reported on Thursday that the Belgian FA has not received any contact from Real regarding an approach for Martinez.

The 45-year-old has only managed three clubs in his career – Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton.

After getting sacked from his post at Goodison Park in 2016, Martinez took on the Belgium head coach role.

He guided the nation to third in the World Cup – the country’s best ever finish in the tournament.

Reports that Real Madrid could be sniffing around Martinez has sparked a reaction from Liverpool fans, some of whom enjoyed his demise as Everton boss.

'We don't want another Courtois here' – These Chelsea fans discuss potential move for £97m star

Before the season began, not many tipped Chelsea to be Premier League title contenders.

The club failed to finish inside the top four last season under former manager Antonio Conte, and it was thought that there would be a transitional period following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri.

However, the players have slotted into the new system well, and they currently sit third in the league table, two points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho were among the new arrivals in the summer, while Kepa Arrizabalaga was recruited to replace goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

The main problem area for Chelsea has been the lack of firepower up front, and they have had to rely on their midfielders and wingers to find the back of the net.

There is one man who some Chelsea supporters believe could add an extra dimension to their attack, and that is Ousmane Dembele.

According to Spanish radio station RAC 1, Barcelona are prepared to sell the winger they bought for £97m in August 2017 during the January transfer window.

The talented star, who was linked with numerous clubs in the summer, has struggled to hold down a regular place in the team since his move from Borussia Dortmund last year.

Some Chelsea fans think the Blues need to make a move, while others are concerned about his disciplinary issues.
