Sky Sports reporter updates on future of Chelsea attacker

Willian tipped to leave Chelsea

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol fancies Willian to head through the exit door at Chelsea when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

Willian has been with the Blues for nearly seven seasons but he appears on the cusp of leaving the club, having failed to agree on a contract extension.

Arsenal and Liverpool have been heavily linked with his services and Solhekol insists that nothing has changed with respect to the forward's situation.

"As far as Chelsea are concerned, it's fair to say they've moved on [from Willian] and he has quite a few options in front of him.They've signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, he will be joining in the summer," he told.

Willian is keen on remaining in the Premier League next term and has a particular preference to stay in the English capital. The Gunners are currently holding an interest in his services but they could face competition from Jurgen Klopp's side.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man is expected to demand a three-year contract. There are claims that the Gunners may have the advantage in the player's pursuit due to the presence of David Luiz, who is a very close friend.
