The winger recently penned a short-term deal to extend his stay with Chelsea until the end of the 2019/20 season.


Metro UK now reports the Brazilian winger could complete a move to the Emirates after Saturday’s, August 1, FA Cup final.



It is believed Willian was keen to sign a long-term contract with Chelsea but discussions seem to have hit a dead end.



It is understood Stamford Bridge chiefs were only willing to offer the forward a two-year deal, but the footballer’s reps insist Willian deserves a three-year extension.

However, that would go against Chelsea’s policy on contracts affecting players above 30 years.




The west London club therefore expect the 32-year-old to link up with Arsenal from next season. Incidentally, his final match for the Blues could be against his future employers in the FA Cup finals to be played at Wembley Stadium.


Willian missed his side’s last league match of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. but could be in line to face the Gunners for a chance to lift one final trophy with the Blue side of London.
