Willian, s keen, has decided to make a return to Chelsea this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The Brazilian left Stamford Bridge for the Emirates last summer after seven years on a free transfer.
The Blues had refused to offer the 32-year-old the three-year deal he desperately wanted.
Instead, Willian joined the Gunners and after less than a year in north London, in which he scored just one goal in 37 appearances, the player now wants to leave.
Willian wants a new challenge and is keen on returning to Chelsea to play under Thomas Tuchel.
It is, however, claimed that some clubs around Europe, as well MLS franchise Inter Miami want to sign him but Chelsea would be his No 1 choice.
He is currently under contract with Arsenal until 2023, meaning the Blues would have to pay a transfer fee for a player they allowed to walk away for nothing 12 months ago.
