Andre Villas-Boas plays down reports linking Chelsea with a move for Shakhtar Donetsk forward Willian.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has cooled talk of an imminent move for Shakhtar Donetsk forward Willian.

Reports have linked the Blues with a move for the Brazilian, who has impressed during Shakhtar's Champions League campaigns in recent years.

However, Villas-Boas has suggested that he is an unlikely target due to his ineligibility to play in European competition.

"Willian is a very interesting player, but he is cup tied in the Champions League," said Villas-Boas.

"I don't think we should go for players who cannot be involved in all the competitions."

The 23-year-old has been capped twice by Brazil.
