Willian can’t wait to leave Arsenal this summer and are aiming for a return to Chelsea, according to reports.

The 32-year-old left Chelsea after his contract expired last June and then signed a three-year contract with Arsenal on a free transfer.

But since moving to north London, the Brazilian has failed to make a significant impact, scoring just once in 37 appearances this season.

Willian admitted his preference was to extend his stay at Chelsea, but the club refused to offer him a three-year contract.

The midfielder is now looking to leave Arsenal this summer and Sky Sports report that Chelsea is his destination of choice.

Inter Miami have also made a move to sign Willian, as it is understood Arsenal are ready to offload the Brazilian after his disappointing first season at the club.

Speaking earlier this year, Willian made it clear he was desperate not to leave Chelsea.

“It was difficult to make this decision because the rivalry between the two clubs is very big,” he told UOL Esporte.

“It was well thought out… talking to my wife and even the agent several times.

“I didn’t leave the club with a fight, I left the doors open. Everyone knew the conditions, I really wanted to stay.

“ We ended up not coming up with a deal, I ended up asking for three years, Chelsea wanted to give two, and everyone knows that story. That’s why I ended up leaving.
