Arsenal handed major potential boost after Real Madrid transfer decision

Good news for Arsenal on the Willian front.

There’s some positive transfer news emerging this morning as it’s reported that Real Madrid have turned down the chance to sign Chelsea winger and rumoured Arsenal target Willian.

According to the Daily Mirror, Real have snubbed Willian as they are reluctant to offer him a three-year deal to move to the Bernabeu.

On top of that, the report suggests the preference for the Brazil international is to remain in the Premier League, with Arsenal and Tottenham mentioned as being interested.

With Madrid out of the running, this should be good news for the Gunners in terms of getting a deal for Willian done.

Although the 31-year-old is no longer at the peak of his powers, he has remained an important player for Chelsea this season and surely still has plenty to offer at this level for a few more years.

Willian will be a free agent this summer and Arsenal could do well to avoid splashing the cash on new signings given the likely economic impact of the coronavirus crisis.

With Nicolas Pepe struggling since his big move last summer, Willian would surely be a useful option to strengthen Mikel Arteta’s attack.

    Willian would be a wonderful edition to Arsenal considering his skills, tactics, experience and winning mentality. He would definitely fit well into the scheme of things.

    How is that good news? The same was said about Luiz, what did he bring to AFC?One player cannot carry the team, you need 10 others to support you. Juve learnt this, they thought Ronaldo would fetch them the UCL,never happened. When you have incompetent midfield and defense, what can Willian do? Auba did his best, but still missed some sitters, yet there is no midfield goal scoring ability (oh, sorry I forgot, Ozil did score one!) to ease the burden or carry the ball forward. Just a waste of money on wages for the next 2 or 3 years. Would be better suited for Tot. than us. Midfield has to be upgraded first as midfield is the first line of defense and our weakest link. Minor improvement in defense I can say, but midfield OMG, it gets worse every game we play.
