It’s no longer news that Willian won’t be a Chelsea player next season, as the Brazilian failed to agree fresh terms with the club and will be joining Chelsea’s London rivals, Arsenal.

Now a free agent, it has been confirmed that Willian will be Arsenal’s first signing of the summer, and the Brazilian has reportedly agreed terms with Arsenal, who are willing to sign him up on a three-year deal.

According to the Evening Standard, Willian has now done his medical on Monday morning, as the deal is edging confirmation stage.

Willian has confirmed his exit with a letter to the fans.

“They were seven wonderful years,” Willian wrote in an open letter to the Chelsea fans.

“In August 2013 when I received the offer from Chelsea, I was convinced that this was where I had to play. Today I am certain it was the best of decisions. There were so many happy times, some sad, there were trophies and it was always very intense.

“Yet, beyond the trophies, I learnt a lot about myself. I developed a great deal, becoming a better player and a better person. With each training session, with each game, with every minute spent in the dressing room, I was always learning.

“I am really grateful to the Chelsea fans for the affectionate way they welcomed me at Stamford Bridge and their support throughout my time at the club.

“There was also criticism, which is normal, what is important though is that both the affection and criticism drove me to always give my all in every training session, every game, to be constantly improving until my very last minute in a Chelsea shirt!

“The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my teammates. I will miss all the staff at the club who’ve always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans.

“I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and always did my best in a Chelsea shirt!

“My heartfelt thanks go out to all of you and God bless you!”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
