Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are ahead of a number of clubs in the race to sign Chelsea's Willian, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal reportedly have the edge over a number of teams in the race to sign Chelsea attacker Willian at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

The Brazil international will be out of contract at Stamford Bridge in June, and it appears increasingly likely that he will be leaving the Blues on a free transfer as talks over a new deal have stalled.

Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are all believed to be interested in signing the South American on a free transfer ahead of the 2020-21 season.

However, according to Tuttosport, fellow interested clubs Tottenham and Arsenal have an advantage as Willian's family would like to remain in London.

The 31-year-old has contributed seven goals and six assists in 37 appearances for Chelsea during the current campaign.

The attacker recently revealed that he is only interested in signing a new three-year contract with Frank Lampard's side, who have thus far offered just a two-year extension.
