Arsenal are set to announce the signing of Willian in the coming days after he rejected Chelsea’s new contract offer, according to reports in Brazil.
The 31-year-old is a free agent this summer and has turned down Chelsea’s offer of a new two-year deal as he is requesting terms which run for the next three seasons.
According to ESPN Brasil, Arsenal are now hoping to confirm the signing of Willian ‘in the coming days’ after he rejected Chelsea’s last-ditch offer.
The report also claims that Manchester United and Manchester City made a late approach to Willian’s representatives, but the Brazil international has decided to join Arsenal because they are willing to offer a three-year contract
