If the latest reports are to be believed, the English Premier League club Arsenal will be welcoming Brazilian international Willian to the Emirates Stadium this summer window.

It is reported that the West London club yet to agree on a new deal with the 31-year-old and he is not willing o leave England amidst interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

Arsenal are reported to be positive to strike a deal for the winger with claims that Willian’s countryman and former teammate David Luiz will be instrumental in making it happen.

Willian has had over 300 appearances for Chelsea since joining the Stamford Bridge in 2013 but his age has been the barrier for the kind of deal he seeks for. He demands a three-year deal which the Blues are not willing to meet.

However, Arsenal are hoping they can convince Willian to consider a move to the Emirates Stadium as they are willing to meet his demands to give him the opportunity to remain in England and London.

Willian already received a huge deal from David Beckham’s Inter Miami at the MLS but turned it down to remain in England.

Should Chelsea fail to agree on a deal with Willian before next month, he will be a free player which makes it very easy for Arsenal to do a deal this summer window.
