Arsenal have reported tied down Chelsea winger who has become a free agent with the expiration of his contract this summer, and this deal could be said to have come out of the blue, with the rumours only surfacing for a while and a deal already trashed out, but that’s perhaps because he’s a free agent.
Many have praised the potential signing and many have likewise questioned the motive behind signing the 31 year old wide man. Reports have now surfaced from a very reliable sources what inspired Arsenal into going in for the Brazilian.
According to the highly reliable David Orstein of ‘The Athletic’, Willian to Arsenal is a request solely from Mikel Arteta who sees Willian as viable addition to his first team squad as he looks to reshape for next season.
There would, as you’d expect, be divisions in the fanbase as to whether or not Willian is the right purchase but one thing is quite certain, for a man of his experience, and as a free agent, Willian is definitely a solid addition.
