Willian is available free of charge in the summer and is particularly popular in the Premier League. Even the Arsenal is now to be interested – and even be in the race again.
Spanish media recently reported that Willian is currently in talks with Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur is also said to be keen to sign the Chelsea striker. Inter Milan is considered to be interested from abroad. With two ex-Chelsea coaches working at Tottenham with Jose Mourinho and at Inter with Antonio Conte, an obligation is at least not unlikely.
In any case, Willian’s advisor currently has his hands full despite Corona, because Arsenal are also interested in the Brazilian and should even be favorites to sign him. This is reported by the Brazilian ESPN journalist Jorge Nichola (via Evening Standard ).
Just like at Tottenham, Willian could then remain at home in London and would only have to drive to another training ground in the future – as many players have done before him. Petr Czech once changed from Chelsea to Arsenal, Olivier Giroud went the opposite way. The most recent example is Willian’s compatriot David Luiz, who was transferred from the Blues to the Gunners just last summer.
For Arsenal, Willian could still be a reinforcement: The winger is the undisputed regular player at Chelsea this season and has 13 goal appearances in 37 competitive games. The 31-year-old is unlikely to get a new contract at Stamford Bridge due to disagreements over the term, and Chelsea have already signed a new player for Willian’s position with Hakim Ziyech.
