Chelsea, Barcelona and Inter Miami all make Willian offers as Arsenal plot free transfer move for out-of-contract winger

CHELSEA winger Willian reportedly has a number of offers on the table ahead of his contract expiring.

At the end of the season, the Brazilian will have his pick of several top clubs – plus a big money deal in the States.

Chelsea are among those trying to convince Willian to sign but the Blues may not meet his contract length requirements

According to Sky Sports, Barcelona, Inter Miami, Arsenal and current club Chelsea all have deals on the table.

The largest in terms of salary is said to be David Beckham’s MLS side Miami, who joined the league this year.

That contract would run until the end of their 2023 campaign, with Barcelona also meeting the three-year minimum requirement set out by the player himself.

Willian’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has stated that as many as five teams want to sign the 31-year-old when his contract expires.

Joorabchian told talkSPORT: “We had big offers – one from MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always wanted to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished he would decide.

“He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, an offer from an MLS club, and two other offers from Europe

“He is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.”

Frank Lampard has insisted on his desire to keep Willian but the winger has claimed that a three-year deal is not available at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal, who have completed a number of deals with Joorabchian in recent years, are rumoured to be the frontrunners.

There had even be talk that Willian would miss Saturday’s FA Cup final between the two sides to complete a move to Emirates Stadium.
