Former Chelsea trio hoping for reunion at Arsenal

Arsenal duo David Luiz and Willian have been urging former team-mate at Chelsea Oscar to join them in North London.

The trio all played together during the 2016-17 Premier League winning campaign under Antonio Conte, but have all since left Chelsea to play for other clubs, and Luiz and Willian have already reunited at the Emirates.

The duo are now claimed to have made contact with their former team-mate and friend Oscar to urge him to join the new revolution under Mikel Arteta, something the player claims would be difficult.

Oscar told Fox Sports Brasil (Via DailyMail): “They called me, they had to call me. Because we have good communication. Sometimes I talk to them. They said ‘come to Arsenal, come here’

“But for me it’s a little more difficult. I have a contract with Shanghai, it’s a little more difficult to leave. Willian had finished the contract.

“I was happy that they got together again. And happy that Willian is happy. The most important thing is to be happy, regardless of the place. So I hope they are happy there.”

The 29 year-old sounds as if he would be open to the switch, although his comments tell us his club may not wish to discuss their star’s exit, but he would no doubt be a boost to our options as we look to add a creative spark to our midfield.

At 29 years-old, he could well be a shrewd signing, although he may need time to re-adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.

I do wonder if Luiz and Willian were asked to sound out Oscar to test the waters, given we are in the market for a player of his ilk, especially as Gabriel Magalhaes was announced in a group video chat much like the one that appears to have happened between them and Oscar…

Could the Brazilian be a more viable alternative for our current budget?

    Crappy article, it’s been posted here once.
    Oscar is clearly delusional making it seems like they were trying to convince him.
    The way I see it, it’s just three friends joking and teasing each other about how they miss the other and would love to have the other one back.
    Surely Luis and Willian both can’t be stupid enough to think they’d go out making transfer plans for Arteta and Arsenal do they?
    Like I said, irrelevant article

    Groundhog day Eddie., I believe it’s word for word!!!

    Why haven’t villa announced the Martinez signing and, likewise our signing of Auba’s extension?

    Why Oscar? I think Peter Osgood and Alan Hudson were better. No more chelsea-bodies. Please.

    Omg Auba has done it again – tweeted an egg-timer emoji……

    1. Robert Acedius says:

      Why contracts at all? Let the transfer window be open every day until the end of time. I’m sure Auba would love that.
