Chelsea winger Willian says he would be prepared to join a London rival once his contract expires at the end of June.

The Brazilian is set to leave the club at the expiry of his Blues deal and said he is open to joining another London club after seven years with Chelsea.

He has been linked with a move to Arsenal where his best friend David Luiz plays and he already has a working relationship with their Technical Director Edu Gaspar.

Spurs, on the other hand, are managed by the man who signed him for Chelsea and tried to sign him at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho.

“I like London and my family likes it too but that’s a question I don’t know how to answer,” he said in an interview with the Bolivia Talk Show.

“I don’t know which club I’m going to or if I’m staying here at Chelsea or if I’m leaving to another London club or if I’m leaving England, that’s something I don’t know.

“I have a lot of love for everyone at the club and the fans. However, it is like I said before, if I leave Chelsea with no trouble and leaving the doors open, it would be fine to move to a rival club.

“Nothing arrived from Mourinho but we do have a good relationship, he’s a big friend of mine. We speak to each other sometimes and he respects me a lot.”
