REVEALED: Arsenal must sell Mkhitaryan to sign Willian

Arsenal must offload Henrikh Mkhitaryan in order to sign Willian, according to reports.

The Gunners are reportedly close to signing Willian after the Brazilian rejected a two-year contract offer from Chelsea.

Mkhitaryan, 31, spent this season on loan at Roma and currently earns £180,000-a-week.

And The Sun says the Armenia must leave the Emirates before Mikel Arteta can complete Willian's signing.

Brazil international Willian has been offered a three-year deal by the north London club and will take home £130,000-a-week, similar wages to his Chelsea contract.
