Frank Lampard in FA Cup final dilemma with Chelsea’s Willian lined up to join Arsenal

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is facing a dilemma over Willian ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup final against Arsenal.

The Blues take on Mikel Arteta’s Gunners for the final piece of domestic silverware in this extended season.

But the Wembley clash could also be the last game Willian ever plays for Chelsea.

The Brazilian winger is out of contract at the end of the season, and his future remains unclear after a seven-year stay.

It was hoped that Willian would agree a new deal by the end of the week.

But his agent Kia Joorabchian insists that the 31-year-old will only make his final decision after the FA Cup final, with several other offers already on the table.

Super agent Joorabchian told talkSPORT: “We had two very big offers – one from the MLS which required him to move on July 1 – but he’s always been in the same mode, saying, ‘I want to finish the season at Chelsea and the day after the season has finished I will make my decision’.

“He has two concrete offers from Premier League clubs on the table, he has an MLS offer on the table which is very big, and he’s got two other offers in Europe.

Kia Joorabchian has revealed there is interest from multiple clubs in Willian

“So Willian is in a very good position and he is going to make his decision after the last game of the season.”

Arsenal are one of the clubs being linked with a move for Willian, and are the favourites to land him.

That leaves Lampard in a precarious position over whether to pick him for such an important game, when he may be jumping ship to Saturday’s opposition just days later.
