Willian’s contract with Chelsea will run out at the end of the season and will thus make him a free agent.

The Brazilian has proven to be a quality player for Chelsea since joining the club in 2013, but the club and Willian are yet to reach an agreement in terms of signing a new contract.

Willian has now been linked with a move to Chelsea rivals Arsenal, since he has stated his desire to remain in London – a move Chelsea fans won’t be too keen to see.

However, Arsenal legend Martin Keown doesn’t see the Brazilian joining Arsenal. For Keown, if he doesn’t re-sign with Chelsea, he’d either join Real Madrid or Barcelona.

“I don’t see him going to Arsenal,” Keown told talkSPORT. “I think he’s aiming for Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“He’s an incredible talent. Chelsea will be weaker if he goes but Frank Lampard knows what he’s doing. I’m sure he wants to keep him.”
