Arsenal on the verge of missing out on free agent following latest update

Willian might sign a new Chelsea deal in what will be a blow to Arsenal’s hopes of landing him.

The Brazilian has been one of the most important players at the club since he joined the Blues in 2013.

He has been pivotal to the successes that they have enjoyed since his arrival at the club, and Frank Lampard thinks that he can offer more to his team going into the future, according to ESPN.

The Brazilian has been in talks with the Blues over a new deal for a long time now, but talks have stalled after he told the club that he wants a three-year deal.

This has opened the door for Arsenal to try to sign him on a free transfer ahead of an important first full season for Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard has been rebuilding the Gunners, and he has proven to be an inspired managerial appointment.

But he knows that he will need good signings in the summer to build on his good start at the Emirates.

ESPN claims that Frank Lampard is urging Chelsea to open talks over a new deal with Willian again.

It remains unclear if the Blues will agree to his demand for a three-year deal or offer him a higher salary on a two-year deal.

    “The Spaniard has been rebuilding the the Gunners, and he has been an inspired managerial appointment”?
    A bit early yet for such pronouncements one could argue, because apart from extending David Luiz contract plus tying down Saka, we haven’t seen how much imput or support Mikel Arteta will get in the transfer market.
    With regard to Willan, it looks like another case of potential Arsenal interest being used in contract negotiations.

    My god, do I hope this is true. The fact we are seriously considering him shows we are still failures in the transfer market. This is such a chump move. Have we learned nothing from Cech and David Luiz??

      RSH does it surprise you? In the past we hired young players for the future, now we are hiring players with the past behind them. Except Pepe, Tierney, Gaby, Auba ,Leno and Sanchez maybe can you name me one signing in the last 5-6 years worth it
      Luiz, Marri,Cedric, Socrates, Lich.,Kolasinac, Mkhitaryan, Mavro, Laca, Xhaka, Torrera, Mustafi, Perez, Assano, Holding, Chek, Elneny, Jenkinson,Chambers, Welbeck, Gabriel, Debuchy, Bielik.
      And we get angry that we hare a mid table team after hiring all these average players?
      And those Wenger worshipers, kindly note that except Lich, Socrates, Guendozi, Cedric, Marri,Luiz the rest were hired by Wenger himself. He laid the solid foundation for a relegation headed team. Ozil was a one season wonder, the useless spoke in the RM wheel which after disposing off they went to win the UCL. Smart move by RM, dumb move by AFC,.
      RSH, be calm and composed to accept past over the hill garbage dumped here by Kai / Riola. We are destined to be the next West Ham.

    We need Coutinho more than Willian.
    We have several Players in his position, just name it.. Saka, Nelson, Pepe, Auba, Martinelli, and Mkhitaryan.

    We need an AM, for Ozil, Torreira, Guendozi and maybe Ceballos Will leave..
    Only Willock and Smith Rowe that we had left.
    Someone like Coutinho and Partey that Linked with us will be great.
    Or even David Silva, Mario Gotze.

    But for me, I prefer Dominik Szoboszlai to come..

    OT.. The Mancs are eyeing up Sancho, Koulibaly, Grealish and Rice – Wow!!!
    While we’re thinking of Willian!!

    Have we sold anyone yet?? There’s so much to do – incomings and outgoings… come on Raul, pull your finger out…
