Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has reportedly urged the club to keep midfielder Willian this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande are said to be willing to spend £50million this summer on the Brazil international, who has been one of the bright sparks for the Blues in a disastrous campaign.

However, Hiddink has told incoming boss Antonio Conte that he must keep hold of the 27-year-old.

The Dutchman said: “I have known Willian for many years, before the Chelsea time. As a person, he is very nice and down to earth. On top of that, he is doing a very good job. He can be a key player at this club.”

The west London outfit sold Ramires to China for £25million in January, and they could be tempted to do so again if they were offered double that for Willian, who has scored 11 goals in 45 matches in all competitions this term.
