Willian has announced he is leaving Chelsea after seven years with the club.

The Brazilian confirmed his exit in an open letter to fans on Sunday.

It read in part: “The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my teammates. I will miss all the staff at the club who’ve always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans.

“I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and always did my best in a Chelsea shirt.

Willian is believed to have rejected a two-year contract extension with the Blues.

He will now sign for their London rivals Arsenal in the coming days after the Gunners offered him a three-year deal.
