Ex-Tottenham man Darren Bent is convinced Willian would be a better fit at Spurs than with North London rivals Arsenal.

Willian is currently expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer as speculation over his future continues.

The Blues are only willing to offer the Brazilian a two-year deal over his preferred choice of three years at least.

Earlier this week, agent Kia Joorabchian confirmed that Willian already had five offers on the table for him. Two from the Premier League and the remaining from the MLS.

The Premier League sides in question are reportedly the North London duo of Tottenham and Arsenal.

Ex-Spurs man Darren Bent is shocked Chelsea are stalling to offer Willian what he wants. Regardless, he thinks the 31-year-old would fit in more at Tottenham than Arsenal.

“If I was Chelsea I’d give Willian a three-year contract,” he said on Wednesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast. “What’s the issue?

“I’d give him the three years. I would!”

“But, you look at Arsenal’s front line and they’ve got Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah, Bukayo Saka… there are quite a few there so he might not suit Arsenal.”

“He might not get as much game time and signing him could also stunt the growth of a player like Martinelli.”

“But as far as Spurs, Willian right in there.”

“Their right hand side has been a problem, they’ve tried Steven Bergwijn and they’re tried Lucas Moura out there and its hasn’t quite worked.”

“But if you now go Willian, Harry Kane and Heung-min son, that changes the whole dynamic of that team going forward.”

Willian is expected to make a decision on his future after his side’s FA Cup final against his potential next club Arsenal on Saturday.
