Rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target, Willian has confirmed that he has left Chelsea after seven years at the club.
Chelsea famously signed the Brazilian from under Tottenham’s noses back in 2013 and he has gone on to be a terrific servant for the club over the years (Guardian).
Reports over the past week had indicated that the 31-year-old failed to come to an agreement with Blues over a new deal (Fabrizio Romano).
Spurs were established as the favourite to sign the winger a few months ago (Mundo Deportivo) but reports indicate that Arsenal are now in negotiations to snap up the former Anzhi Makhachkala man (Sky Sports).
It is claimed that Mikel Arteta’s side are willing to offer Willian a three-year deal to convince him to sign on the dotted line.
It remains to be seen where Willian will be playing his football next season, but it is certainly not going to be Stamford Bridge. The winger has taken to Instagram to post an emotional goodbye message to Chelsea fans and thanked them for their support.

Based on recent reports, it does seem like Willian is on his way to Arsenal. We do not seem to be pushing the Gunners for his signature, which I am surprised by given Jose Mourinho’s relationship with the Brazilian. That suggests that we could potentially have our eyes on other wide options instead of the 31-year-old.
