Brazil international Willian has opened the door to joining either Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur when his contract with Chelsea expires at the end of the season.



The 31-year-old has spent nearly seven years with the west London giants and he has been a key performer, having bagged 59 goals and 59 assists from nearly 330 appearances.

However, he has been unable to negotiate a new contract with the club beyond the summer and reports have claimed that he could remain in the English capital with either Arsenal or Tottenham.

Speaking to a Brazilian Youtube channel, Willian said that he will have to make a hard decision during the summer and admitted that it would be fine to move to a rival club.

"It really is a hard decision. I identified myself a lot at Chelsea, I have a lot of love for everyone at the club, and the fans," He told.

"However, it is like I said before, if I leave Chelsea with no trouble and leaving the doors open, it would be fine to move to a rival club."

Arsenal have recently emerged as the favourites to land his signature. The Gunners are prepared to hand him a three-year contract and are aiming to lure him through David Luiz, who remains a long-time friend.
