Spurs, Gunners leading Willian race

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are understood to hold the advantage in the race to sign Willian, whose contract with Chelsea expires in the summer.

The Brazilian will be out-of-contract in less than four months' time and he is reluctant to sign an extension with the Blues unless they meet his demands for a three-year deal.

That appears unlikely to happen at the moment and Tuttosport claims that Spurs and Gunners will be among the favourites to sign him on a free transfer this summer.

Apart from the north London duo, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have all been credited with an interest in the former Shakhtar Donetsk man.

Willian, who has contributed seven goals and six assists this season, is keen on staying put in the English capital next term, particularly after he passed the British citizenship test earlier in the year.

As things stand, the attacker is likely to part ways with the Blues after seven long seasons.
