Brazilian star Willian has opened the door for a lucrative move to Chelsea or Tottenham by declaring he wants to play in the Premier League - but says it is unlikely to happen in January.
The Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker has been strongly linked with a move to England following his superb displays in both domestic and Champions League games.
Both Rafael Benitez and Andre Villas-Boas are believed to be big admirers of the 24-year-old and were hoping a deal could be finalised to sign him during the January transfer window.
Willian admits it would be a dream for him to play in the Premier League, but knows Shakhtar Donetsk are unwilling to sell him at the moment and says he is happy to stay and help the team reach the latter stages of the Champions League.
Willian said: "I was quite upset about what happened at the time, because big clubs like Chelsea and Tottenham were interested in securing my services.
"Every player dreams of playing in the Premier League. It's in the past now, though. I'm calm and doing my utmost out there on the pitch.
"I don't feel any pressure as I have met with the Shakhtar board and they are aware of my desire to move to a big club in Italy, Spain or England. I have two more years to go on my contract here and will continue to give my best.
"Chelsea are a great club and won the Champions League. Tottenham are a big club as well, and have a good coach in Andre Villas-Boas.
"They are two clubs with tradition. I'm still with Shakhtar for now, though. The transfer window is open for a few more days, but there are no offers it seems.
"You always keep hoping, but I'm focused on Shakhtar and want to do well in the Champions League. The board knows what I want, so there's no need to keep on talking about it."
