Arsenal winger Willian could reportedly leave on a free transfer after being deemed surplus to requirements.

The Brazilian joined the Gunners on a three-year deal last summer after his contract with Chelsea expired.

He had a disappointing debut season, ending up with just one goal and seven assists from 37 appearances.

According to The Telegraph, Willian is now in advanced negotiations over a possible return to Corinthians.

He is currently on wages of around £200,000-a-week. The Gunners are happy to release him to save his salary.

Sead Kolasinac is expected to leave the club in a similar kind of agreement.

The Bosnian has been tipped to join Fenerbahce. They are likely to sign him on a two-year deal with a 12-month option.

The Gunners' prime focus at the moment remains on outgoings, but they are open to making more signings this month.

The north London club could pursue a new right-back and striker before the transfer window closes on August 31.
