Blue to Red? Willian 5/2 to swap Chelsea for Arsenal this summer
Willian could be set to follow in the footsteps of Petr Cech and William Gallas by swapping the blue of Chelsea for the red of Arsenal this summer.
The Brazilian forward’s contract expires at the end of the current season, and we make it a 5/2 chance for him to rock up at the Emirates next term.
Indeed, the 31-year-old may require the services of a North London estate agent either way, because our traders reckon Tottenham are his second-most likely destination at 100/30.
It’s a price they share with Liverpool, who may consider Willian as an attractive backup option if Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana depart Anfield in the summer.
Elsewhere, long-term suitors Barcelona are also in the running at 6/1, while there’s 8/1 about Willian joining ex-Stamford Bridge teammate Juan Mata at Old Trafford.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks as though Willian will be sticking around in the Premier League and as things stand, he won’t be travelling too far to his next club, with Arsenal and Tottenham both heading the betting.”
