North London outfit Arsenal have been favoured by the statement reportedly credited to Brazilian international and Chelsea winger, Willian on his wish for the future.

The West London outfit have been struggling to hand a new deal to the Brazilian but the terms have been the major challenge as the club have an existing policy for players who are above 30.

A number of clubs are already lined up for his services with Arsenal also indicating interests, alongside David Beckham’s Inter Miami with a bumper offer.

Bur from emerging reports, Willian has already told his friends of his desire to stay in London and play under manager Mikel Arteta with Arsenal already willing to hand him the three-year-deal he is requesting.

Mikel Arteta sees investment in Willian on a free deal as a wise one as he could add to the attacking strength of the club as well as help younger players with his experience.

Chelsea are only willing to give the 31-year-old a two-year deal and that has been rejected which means he would be a free player in few weeks.

Meanwhile, manager Frank Lampard is making frantic efforts to convince the club hierarchy for a three-year-deal for the Brazilian winger and that has been difficult to achieve.
