Ex-Premier League ace reveals that Arsenal’s Brazilian duo tried to tempt him to join the Gunners

Former Chelsea star, Oscar has revealed that David Luiz and Willian attempted to lure him back to the Premier League to sign for Arsenal.

The Brazilian who currently plies his trade in China spent several successful years on the Blue side of London before earning a big-money move to the Chinese Super League.

Arsenal is gradually building a Brazilian community at the Emirates. They signed Gabriel Martinelli and David Luiz last summer, both have been joined by Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes in this transfer window.

Willian will be tasked with spearheading Arsenal’s creative force as they seek to return to the Premier League’s top four, but it seems that he wanted a little help from his former Chelsea teammate.

Oscar has recently revealed that both players called him to try to persuade him to join them at the Emirates but he insisted that he is committed to honouring his current deal at Chinese club, Shanghai SIPG.

“They called me, they came to call me,” Oscar said to Fox Sport Brazil. “Because we have good communication, they talked to me: ‘Come to Arsenal, come here.’

“I have contract with Shanghai, Willian has ended his contract with Chelsea, but I’m happy that both are together again.”

    Willian and Luiz should concentrate on what Arsenal pays them to do. Are they employed to recruit players? Did Arsenal send them to do that? Even during his prime time at Chelsea, Oscar was not a great player

    Luiz and Willian should STFU except they’re trying to help bring Neymar here.
    Geez… Everyone and their cock from Kia to Willian suddenly thinks they’re in charge of our transfer dealings

    To be honest, we have no ideav if they were just having a good time with Oscar and telling him how good it is to be at our club at the moment.

    Let’s just take a step back and think about it – does anyone REALLY believe that Luiz and Willian have the power to do this?
    Just three friends having a chat about life and our club, as far as I’m concerned.

    Where’s this announcement Sue?!?!

      Spot on KEN. THE IDEA THAT ANY PLAYER HAS ANY REAL SAY IN BRINGING ANOTHER TO THECLUB IS FOR NAIVE FANS ONLY. IF ONLY MORE FANS HAD ANY IDEA WHAT ACTUALLY GOES INTO NEGOTIATING TRANSFERS. SIGH!
      As for that announcement, I had presumed it would happen either today or tomorrow morning, as the season is then on us and its effect on fans will wane once the season has actually begun.
