The representative of Chelsea winger Willian has been in contact with Arsenal regarding a move for the Brazil international.

Willian's current deal with the Blues expires in the summer and so far, he has been unable to find an agreement over an extension.

According to ESPN, agent Kia Joorabchian has offered his client's services to the Gunners, who are likely to search a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang's present contract expires in 14 months' time and the Gunners have been reluctant to meet his significant wage demands of around £350,000-a-week.

Instead, they appear likely to sanction his departure and they could thereafter make a contract offer for Willian, who is keen on remaining in London next season.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man is eyeing a three-year deal with his new club on top of £120,000-a-week wages. Aside from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with an interest in signing him.

Willian has netted seven goals and registered six assists for Chelsea this term.
