Chelsea star Willian is ready to bide his time before deciding his future amid interest from Tottenham and Arsenal.
The 31-year-old Brazil winger has been offered to both clubs but wants to see if they can offer him Champions League football next season.
Spurs went out of Europe’s top club competition to Leipzig this week and currently lie four points behind fifth-placed Manchester United in the Premier League.
Arsenal are already out of the Europa League and are sitting a point behind Tottenham but with a game in hand.
Willian looks set to leave Stamford Bridge as a free agent when his contract runs out this summer because he wanted a three-year deal but has only been offered two.

He is keen to stay in London, where his family are settled, but wants to play for a Champions League club.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has long admired Willian since their days together at Chelsea and tried to sign him for Manchester United.
He remains a big fan but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would take some convincing as the club have history with Willian.
He famously snubbed them for Chelsea during his medical in 2013 and has since claimed Spurs threatened to report him to FIFA and warned he would face a backlash.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is in the market for younger players this summer and the Gunners do not traditionally offer long contracts to players over 30 either.
But WIllian’s representatives are close to technical director Edu and head of football Raul Sanllehi and a move has been discussed in the corridors of power.
Willian has won two Premier League titles, the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup at Chelsea, making 37 appearances under Frank Lampard this season.
