Brazilian attacker agrees three-year deal with Arsenal

Brazilian attacker agrees three-year deal with Arsenal

Willian set to sign for Arsenal

Chelsea attacker Willian has reportedly agreed terms over a three-year contract with Arsenal prior to joining them on a free transfer.

The Brazilian is expected to leave the Blues when his contract expires this month and he has been tipped to sign for the Gunners.

According to ESPN, the 31-year-old has already accepted a deal worth £100,000-a-week with the Gunners and he will put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract following the Blues' Champions League campaign.

Frank Lampard's side are trailing Bayern Munich 3-0 after the first leg of the round of 16 tie and they are likely to face elimination this weekend unless they make a sensation turnaround at the Allianz Arena.

Willian has missed the past two games for the Blues with a minor injury and reports claim that he may not recover in time for the European showdown against the German champions.

Chelsea are expected to be without Christian Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta, Pedro, Billy Gilmour and Willian due to injuries while Marcos Alonso and Jorginho are suspended.
