Chelsea have rejected a €45m offer plus Malcom from Barcelona for their forward Willian, according to reports.
The Catalan giants had a series of offers for the Brazilian international rejected over summer, culminating in a €60m bid.
Eventually the Blaugrana instead signed his compatriot Malcom from Bordeaux in a €41m transfer but he has failed to settle at the Camp Nou, starting just one La Liga match.
The 21-year-old did start Barca’s Copa del Rey loss against Levante but missed two good opportunities while the club have reportedly also received interest in him from China.
However, Chelsea are said to have turned down Barcelona’s latest attempts to land Willian, according to the Daily Telegraph, and it appears unlikely Malcom will be going to Stamford Bridge.
