​Willian has admitted that he would like to continue playing in the ​Premier League after his ​Chelsea contract expires this summer. The Blues midfielder is out of contract at the end of June and feels he will leave because talks over a new deal have stalled.


Chelsea usually only offer over-30s one-year deals but were prepared to give Willian two years.

Talks have broken down with the coronavirus crisis placing football on halt, increasing his chances of leaving in the summer.


A number of clubs are interested in signing the former Shakhtar Donetsk star, including ​Arsenal and ​Tottenham, and Willian has admitted he would look to stay in England if he left Chelsea.


"My desire is to stay in the Premier League, but I don't rule out playing in other leagues, no," Willian told ​ESPN Brazil.



"I’m going to play until the end of the season and see what happens. I’m very used to England."


Willian has also been linked with a return to his home country, he ruled out a return to Brazilian side Corinthians, insisting that he still feels like he's at the top of his game in European football.


"About Corinthians, everyone asks me this question. Of course, I have affection for the club," he added.


"I joined there when I was nine, I left when I was 18, I spent most of the time there, I have many friends there, the whole family was a Corinthians player before I played there. But today, I don't think about going back to play. My goal is to continue in Europe.


"I feel that I am at the peak today. We acquire something over the years, and I believe it is the peak of my career, yes."


Willian has made more than 300 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club in 2013. He has won two Premier League titles, the Europa League, and the FA Cup during his spell at Stamford Bridge.
