Chelsea fans will be disappointed to see this fan-favourite leaving after years of great service, and it will no doubt be even harder for them if he does end up moving to the Emirates Stadium.

It will surely be painful for many CFC supporters to see Willian in the red and white of their rivals Arsenal, who also just beat them in the FA Cup final last week.

AFC have notably also signed Petr Cech and David Luiz from Chelsea in recent times.
