WILLIAN is expected to leave Arsenal this summer with Inter Miami among those in the transfer race, reports say.
The Brazilian arrived from Chelsea on a free transfer last summer but has failed to hit the same heights he once achieved in the Blue side of London.
With only one goal all season, Willian has largely been overlooked in Arsenal’s frontline, leaving his future in doubt.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the winger along with countrymen David Luiz is looking to leave the club.
Inter Miami were interested in taking him to MLS last year before he opted to remain in England with Arsenal.
And they are joined by other European sides lodging interest in the 32-year-old.
Willian still has two years on his contract so will command a transfer fee, which the Gunners could use to invest further in their squad.
But they do have strength in depth going forward, due to the emergence of youngsters like Bukayo Saka, 19 and Emile Smith Rowe, 20.
David Beckham is looking to build an empire Stateside and has already signed Gonzalo Higuain, 33, and Ryan Shawcross, also 33.
And they have been given hope in the pursuit of Willian after he admitted to fancying a move to America.

But that defended on winning trophies with Arsenal, who this season will go empty handed and face a fight to even qualify for the Europa League.
Willian said “My plan is to stay at Arsenal, I have a contract here, and to win trophies.
“I have two more years here and my plan is to stay and be successful, to play and win something with the club.
“I still want to achieve a lot of things. I want to win more trophies, and I want to be at the next World Cup. I will do my best to be there.
“But, yeah, I want to lift trophies for Arsenal – I have a lot of things in my mind that I want to achieve.
“I want to win as much as I can with the team, and go back to the national team as well.
“Whenever I have finished here, I really want to go to America and play there.
“Possibly stay in Europe, I don’t know, but at the moment one of my targets is to play in America at some point in my career.”
