Willian Borges da Silva is hopeful of extending his stay at Stamford Bridge and hopes to win the Champions League under Frank Lampard at Chelsea.

The Brazilian has spent six years in west London – winning two Premier Leagues, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Europa League during his stay – but his current deal is due to expire at the end of 2019/20.

Talks are yet to begin between the 31-year-old and Chelsea chiefs over the possibility of extending his time at the club but he is hopeful he can remain with the Premier League top-four contenders, metro.co.uk reports.

‘I have one year left and I want to stay because I like to play for Chelsea.

‘I love this club, I love to live in London and my family loves it here. I have been here six years already so everything is perfect for me.
