When asked in an interview by YouTube channel ‘Desimpedidos’ about the prospect of moving to either Arsenal or Tottenham when his contract expires, Willian responded:
‘It really is a hard decision.
‘I identified myself a lot at Chelsea, I have a lot of love for everyone at the club, and the fans.
‘However, it is like I said before, if I leave Chelsea with no trouble and leaving the doors open, it would be fine to move to a rival club.’
Willian was then asked if he wanted to stay in London or move abroad to which the Brazilian winger replied:
‘I don’t know. I like London and so does my family.
‘However, this is a question that I still don’t know the answer, if I will stay at Chelsea, move to another team from London, or leave England.’
Mikel Arteta will look to strengthen his side this summer ahead of next season and with limited resources expected to be handed to the Spaniard, a move for the experienced Brazilian would be an astute one by the Gunners to make.
However, it would appear that Tottenham are slight favourites for Willian’s signature this summer as the former Shakhtar Donetsk winger has played under Jose Mourinho when in charge at Stamford Bridge and keeps in contact with the Portuguese manager.
