Chelsea star Willian, is in the final year of his contract with the Blues, and so far, the club and Willian haven’t been able to reach an agreement over a new deal.
Willian is however keen to remain in London, and ESPN’s Jorge Nicola believes Willian’s representatives believe Arsenal are the most viable destination for the Brazilian and have put the Gunners at the top of their list of interested clubs.
According to reports, Willian’s representatives are pushing for a deal to the Gunners to happen.
Willian’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has good relations with Arsenal, after negotiating Edu’s return to the Emirates and helping David Luiz make a move to the North London club.
Willian will be a free agent this summer, and the Brazilian is keen to maintain his current salary of £120,000-a-week for the duration of his stay at the Emirates, which would amount to £18.7m over his three years in north London if he makes the switch.
