The only way Arsenal will complete Willian transfer from Chelsea

Brazilian frontman is sure to be a topic of conversation this summer with his contract ending at Stamford Bridge.Willian's future at Chelsea remains up in the air.

The Brazilian is out of contract at Stamford Bridge this summer, with no indication that he is going to sign an extension to remain in west London.
A number of clubs have shown an interest in him, particularly Arsenal and Tottenham, while Liverpool were also linked with a move.
Reports earlier this week suggested Willian had spoken to Spurs boss Jose Mourinho - the manager who originally snatched him away from the clutches of Spurs and to Chelsea in 2013.
But Willian has reportedly refuted those rumours.
 Brazilian journalist Joao Castelo-Branco tweeted: "Willian completely denies rumour that Mourinho has been in touch recently regarding playing for Tottenham.
"Absolutely no deal even close there."

That has handed Arsenal a timely boost if they are keen to get a deal for the free agent over the line.
Counter claims also suggested this week that the frontman was pondering a three-year contract offer from the Gunners to make the move across London this summer.
And the 31-year-old has stated what he wanted from his next contract, when asked about negotiations with Chelsea and why he had not signed a new deal with the Blues.
He said: "Everyone knows that my contract ends now in a few months, so the renewal is really a difficult thing to happen.

"I think it will be very difficult for me to renew because Chelsea offered me two years, I asked for three and it ended there, we didn't talk anymore, we didn't negotiate anymore."
Willian has openly admitted he wants a three-year contract, which could be his last big deal before he retires, so that would appear to be the only way for Arsenal to get a deal over the line.
