Willian has had a disappointing season so far. The Brazilian winger has been handed a chance in the first team owing to an injury to Pedro, and he’s one little to prove his worth. A great goal against Cardiff City doesn’t forgive the fact that for the majority of his time on the field, he has looked poor.
The prospect of Chelsea replacing him, then, should be on their minds – and we recently made the case that Ligue 1 ace Florian Thauvin would be the perfect replacement. He’s impressing over in France, and he’s quickly earning a reputation as one of Europe’s best.
He wouldn’t be cheap, but in terms of sheer quality, he cannot be doubted – and it appears ass though many Chelsea fans would love him to be at Stamford Bridge.
We asked Chelsea fans whether they view Thauvin as the ideal replacement for Willian, and 68% of those polled responded with a resounding yes. Only 32% of polled fans, meanwhile, disagreed.
Clearly, Chelsea fans have been impressed by Thauvin this term. With 6 goals and 1 assist already this season, he’s started the campaign on fire, and if Chelsea don’t snap him up, someone else surely will.
Not to mention, at 25-years-old, Thauvin has a few years on Willian, too. In truth, selling the Brazilian in favour of Thauvin makes so much sense.
