Barcelona will reportedly consider the sale of Paulinho if it boosts their chances of pushing through a move for Chelsea midfielder Willian.

Barcelona are reportedly considering selling Paulinho if it enables the club to fund a move for Chelsea midfielder Willian.

Last summer, Paulinho was a surprise arrival at Camp Nou but the Brazil international enjoyed a fine campaign, contributing nine goals and two assists from 34 La Liga appearances.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan giants have received interest in the 29-year-old's signature and it could be welcomed if it improves the club's chances of signing Willian from Chelsea.

Despite winning the title last season, boss Ernesto Valverde is allegedly keen on bringing in new attacking players, and the Blues playmaker is said to be on his radar.

Willian has just two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge and with the player turning 30 next month, Chelsea may begin to contemplate the possibility of cashing in this summer.
