The Brazilian is understood to have rejected the Blues' offer of just two years as he was only keen on a three-year new deal.

Reports in the UK contend the 32-year-old has already agreed a deal worth £150,000-per-week at the Emirates and an announcement could be made soon.

He confirmed his exit from Stamford Bridge on Sunday, August 9, in an emotional open letter sent to fans.

"I am really grateful to the Chelsea fans for the affectionate way they welcomed me at Stamford Bridge and their support throughout my time at the club," a clearly hurt Willian said.

"The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my team-mates. I will miss all the staff at the club who've always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans," he continued.

Terry, who spent four years as teammates with Willian has now sent him a message of good will, with the former defender offering his best wishes to him.

"Good luck @willianborges88. Absolute legend. Great player and man. Gonna miss you geez," the Aston Villa no.2 wrote on Instagram.

During his seven-year stay at the west London, Willian won two Premier League titles, the League Cup and the Europa League trophy.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Vinicius Junior has been linked with a sensational move to London clubs Chelsea and Arsenal in the past season but the English sides have reignited their interest in the winger.

Real Madrid spent £39million to sign the Brazilian attacker from Flamengo in 2018 and placed a £630m release clause in his contract.

But that did not stop Paris Saint-Germain in making a move for the pacy winger last summer which did not materialize.
