Edu key as Chelsea attacker Willian enters Arsenal Bosman talks

Chelsea attacker Willian has enter Bosman talks with Arsenal.

Willian is in talks with Arsenal over a free transfer after rejecting a two-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian winger has been at Chelsea for seven years and has been in talks over a new deal but cannot find an agreement with the Blues.

The Gunners are waiting in the wings to see whether Willian manages to find an agreement with Chelsea before his contract comes to an end after the west London club's Champions League second-leg tie with Bayern Munich on Saturday.

L'Equipe says Real Madrid and Manchester United, along with Inter Miami, contacted Willian about his availability, though the Brazilian's preference is to stay in London.

It is understood Arsenal's technical director Edu, a former Brazilian international, has been influential in the winger's talks with the Gunners.
