According to ESPN Brazil, Arsenal are said to be seriously interested in a deal to Lure Chelsea’s outcast and Brazil international Willian to the Emirates this summer.

The Brazilian winger is set to be shown the exit way at the Stamford Bridge in the summer having failed to agree on an extension to his existing contract.

Willian joined Chelsea back in the summer of 2013 in a reported £30 million from Anzhi Makhachkala. Willian, according to best casinos online, has been a solid signing for the Blues, with 63 goals and 62 assists to his name for Chelsea across 339 appearances.

Mikel Arteta will be strongly keen to seeing the Gunners higher up in the Premier League next season and with Willian, the Spanish tactician could help with ambition. This will also see Arsenal fully active in the transfer market this summer to bolster all areas of their squad during the summer.

The signing of Willian for Arsenal, who has 69 international appearances for Brazil, will be one hell of a signing for the club. At age 31, Willian still has a few years left in the tank and his pace, skill and eye for a goal could make him quality at the Emirates Stadium.

Nicolas Pepe has come on leaps and bounds since his arrival from Olympique Lyonnais and Bukayo Saka looks set for a bright future. Aside these duo, however, Arsenal do still look a little light out wide. Willian’s presence would see them land a proven top-flight player capable of an instant impact.

The experienced performer won’t come cheap to Arsenal. He is currently said to be earning a whooping £138,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge and would probably demand another good contract.

Arsenal fans like to be entertained and after 11 goals and nine assists this season, the Gunners should welcome Willian as key signing for the club. He’d be a signing capable of making an impact from the off and would come in having won several trophies with Chelsea.

Arsenal are perhaps lacking in a leader or two and Willian’s arrival would certainly help the younger players kick on next season. Check out for improved odds as we welcome Watford at the Emirates in our last Premier League match of the season.
