Barcelona have launched a second bid of £60million for Chelsea winger Willian.
Sportsmail revealed last month that Chelsea had rejected a £50million offer from the Spanish side.
But Ernesto Valverde has returned with an improved figure which is certain to test Chelsea’s resolve as he looks to add an extra dimension to his attack this summer.
It is understood that the La Liga giants have tabled a £55m offer for the player with a further £5m in add-ons.
Despite winning the league and cup double last season, the Catalan giants have concerns that their squad still lacks greater quality in depth and attacking flair.
Willian is therefore wanted following the departure of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho and the Barca hierarchy also want him to link up with compatriot Philippe Coutinho.
