This latest revelation will be a joyful news to the Arsenal fans who are already anticipating the signing of the free agent Brazilian wing wizard from Chelsea.
The Brazilian international winger was reported to have rejected Chelsea’s latest offer which was tabled to the player and his representative after their FA Cup final loss against Arsenal.
A move to Arsenal had been said to be on the card, with the Gunners believed to be the frontrunner and are also willing to offer the Brazilian a three-year contract this summer.
Willian definitely still has a lot to offer at the top level and an imminent move to Arsenal will add more quality and experience to a relatively young Arsenal’s team.
Considering Willan’s leaked video, that might just be an indication of an imminent announcement of the Brazilian permanent signing by Arsenal in the coming days.
