The 31-year-old winger has been at odds with Chelsea for months about a new contract, with the club refusing to budge on their two-year offer, while the player himself wants three years.
As such, Willian is set to leave upon the conclusion of the 2019-20 season in August and after his agent Kia Joorabchian confirmed there are as many as five offers on the table for his client, Saturday’s opponents Arsenal are now the favourites, according to The Sun.
‘He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, he has an MLS offer on the table which is very big, and he’s got two other offers in Europe,’ his advisor Joorabchian said.
‘We had two very big offers – one from the MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always been in the same mode, saying, “I want to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished I will make my decision.”
‘So Willian is in a very good position and he is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.’
Chelsea were reportedly hopeful that a deal could be struck with Willian this week, cooling speculation ahead of Saturday’s showpiece at Wembley.
