Arsenal to announce Willian signing in the next 48 hours

Arsenal will announce the signing of Willian on a free transfer in the next 48 hours, according to Sky Sports

The Brazilian will pen a three year contract worth £100,000 a week with the Gunners. He received more lucrative offers from Barcelona and David Beckham’s Inter Miami but chose Arsenal as he is attracted to the project in North London. He is excited by the prospect of working with Mikel Arteta and reuniting with Edu Gaspar, who was the general coordinator of the Brazilian national team from 2016 to 2019. 

Chelsea were keen to retain the 32 year old but he rejected their two year contract offer as he wanted a three year deal. He joined Chelsea in 2013 and during his time with the Blues, he won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups and a Europa League. He scored 63 goals and provided 62 assists in 339 appearances for Chelsea. 

This season, he scored eleven goals and provided nine assists in 47 appearances across all competitions. Arsenal believe they are signing a Premier League proven player at an affordable price especially considering they are signing Willian on a free transfer. The Gunners are looking for multifunctional players this summer and the Brazilian can play on the wing or behind the front three.
