According to 101greatgoals, Willian confirmed this in an interview with Brazilian TV show, Desimpediodos on Sunday.
He said: “I was offered the number 10 jersey ahead of next season, and I will take it.”
The number No.10 shirt was last worn by Eden Hazard who left the club for Real Madrid earlier this summer.
Willian will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they take on Barcelona on Tuesday in a pre-season friendly game.
