Curtains came down on the English Premier League over the weekend with Machester City winning a third league title in four seasons, and clubs are wasting no time in sharpening their squads in preparation for next season.
Transfer activity is already on the cards with different clubs linked with different players (transfer speculations at their best) despite the transfer window being weeks away from opening.
One of the players linked with a switch this summer is Arsenal midfielder Willian.
The ex-Chelsea man is understood to be eyeing a return to Stamford Bridge, having been a miss at the Emirates just a season into his three-year deal he signed with the Gunners after turning down a two-year deal with the 2020/21 Champions League finalists.
Willian may have played his last game for Arsenal – with the Brazilian winger understood to be keen on a return to Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian has only managed a single goal in 37 matches for the North London club and is keen on a new challenge, his preferred destination being a familiar ground- Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports reports.
The English outlet claims David Beckham’s MLS side Inter Miami and a host of European clubs are working hard to land the Brazilian who only wants to ‘return home.’
Another former Chelsea man who could be on his way back to Stamford Bridge is Eden Hazard.
The Belgian attacker has been put up for sale by Spanish giants Real Madrid who face financial constraints following the collapse of the proposed European Super League and their continued interest in the goal-poaching duo of Kylian Mbappe as well as Erling Braut Haaland.
Hazard, who won six trophies in his seven seasons at Chelsea is set to be offloaded together with Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic to raise funds for Madrid’s marquee signings.
Hazard only wants Chelsea, reports claim.

Since his £130m move to the Spanish capital in 2019, the former Lille man has failed to impress, an avalanche of injuries playing a key role and considers Chelsea an ideal landing ground for a career revival, a career that is on a downward trajectory.
