The Gunners are hoping to shed Willian's contract after a disappointing debut campaign in north London.
Discussions are taking place which would see the 33-year-old return to his homeland on a free transfer, according to multiple outlets in the UK.
The move would allow Arsenal to waive Willian's salary off their wage books.
All parties are hopeful an agreement can be finalised before the transfer deadline.
