FC Barcelona are willing to offer Chelsea Malcom as part of deal to sign Willian, according to La Sexta.

Barcelona attempted to sign Willian last summer but failed with multiple bids for the winger.

They instead ended their pursuit of the player and signed Malcom from Girondins de Bordeaux.

However, La Liga champions will now look to return for the player in January with Malcom’s move proving unsuccessful.

With the 21-year-old still showing plenty of promise, Barca believe Chelsea may be interested.

An offer of €20m and the Brazilian forward is expected to be submitted in January.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Malcom is already keen to leave the club in January.

The 21-year-old has made just three appearances for Barcelona in all competitions this season.

Ernesto Valverde has instead opted to play the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Phillipe Coutinho and even Munir El Haddadi.
